Teaser Tuesday-Dec. 15


Check out Teaser Tuesdays from Should Be Reading.  TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

Grab your current read.

Let the book fall open to a random page.

Share with us two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.

You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

This week my teaser is from A Lucky Child: A Memoir of Surviving Auschwitz as a Young Boy by Thomas Buergenthal:
As I reflect on this attitude, I realize that it was probably a product of selfish sentiments of a child:  Until then, I had been responsible for my own life, for my survival; I could not afford to depend on anyone but myself; I had to think and act like a grown-up and be constantly on the alert against all possible dangers.  But once I was back in her arms, I could be a child again, leaving these worries and concerns to her.

Wow, that sounds like quite a book! I enjoy learning more about WWII; such a sad time in our history that I hope we will never repeat.

Here's my teaser:

Sounds like such a heartbreaker. To think children had to live like that is horrible.

Too many children were forced to see and do such awful things just to survive during the holocaust. Important books to read to be sure!
