Flares of Memory: Stories of Childhood During the Holocaust

Anita Brostoff

Publisher: Oxford University Press

Ranging from snapshots of pre-Holocaust life to survival in disguise and portraits of “the virtuous and the vicious,” 92 vignettes by Holocaust survivors who participated in writing workshops at the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh are gathered in Flares of Memory: Stories of Childhood During the Holocaust, edited by Anita Brostoff, a retired Carnegie-Mellon University professor, with Sheila Chamovitz, a filmmaker. In “The Last Hiding Place,” Libby Stern recounts watching from her home as German troops surrendered to the Russian Army. Hermine Markovitz tells of being saved by nuns in “The Convent in Marseille.” A final section collects stories by American liberators.
