Boy 30529: A Memoir

Boy 30529: A Memoir


"Anyone who survived the exterminations camps should have an untypical tale to inform. the common camp tale of the hundreds of thousands resulted in demise ... We, the few who survived the battle and the bulk who perished within the camps, didn't use and do not have understood phrases similar to 'holocaust' or 'death march.' those have been coined later, via outsiders."

In 1939 twelve-year-old Felix Weinberg fell into the palms of the Nazis. Imprisoned for many of his teenage lifestyles, Felix survived five concentration camps, together with Terezin, Auschwitz, and Birkenau, barely surviving the dying March from Blechhammer in 1945. After wasting his mom and brother within the camps, he was once liberated at Buchenwald and at last reunited at seventeen along with his father in Britain, the place they equipped a brand new existence together. Boy 30529 is a unprecedented memoir of the Holocaust, to boot as a relocating meditation at the nature of memory.
