Abstract:

"This is a story of a young boy's journey from a sleepy provincial town in Hungary during the Second World War to the concentration camp in Bergen-Belsen." "Accompanied by his parents, he found himself uprooted from the cocoon of a secure family home in the wave of deportation of Hungarian Jews during the Nazi occupation. Unlike other books dealing with this period, this is not a holocaust story, but a child's recollection of a journey full of surprise, excitement, bereavement and terror. Yet this remains a testimony of survival, overcoming obstacles which to adults may seem insurmountable but to a child were just part of an adventure and, ultimately, recovery. After having established a career in the West, the author decided to revisit the stages on his earlier journeys, reliving the past through the perspective of the present. Along the way, ghosts from the past are finally laid to rest by the kindness of new friends."--Jacket.
