For all its heartbreak All But My Life is a beautiful resounding testament to the preciousness of life. In this regard Gerda excels. She writes so well and she organises her material with such deft architectural skill. Our heart goes out to them and stays with them.

Nor can I recall any book that has made me cry as much as this did — my little boy was beginning to get a bit concerned and eventually I had to read it while he was asleep. Just the opposite. This is a memoir but because of the narrative skill of the author it reads like the most gripping of novels. There he stood in his good gray suit, his only one, his shoulders sloping, his hair steel gray in the sun, on his breast the yellow star and black word.

There he stood, already beyond my reach, my father, the center of my life, just labeled JEW. A shrill whistle blew through the peaceful afternoon. Like a puppet a conductor lifted a little red flag. Puffs of smoke rose. The train began to creep away.

He did not move. He did not wave. He did not call farewell. Unseen hands were moving him farther and farther away from us. We watched until the train was out of sight. I never saw my father again.
