Phoenix, Arizona What a great story. Even a greater woman. She holds back a lot of detail of the atrocities commited by the Germans. But what she tells is bad enough. Her love for her mother, who dies in a concentration camp, is heart rendering.
This was a fascinating story. I especially liked hearing of Nona's happy childhood in pre-war Ukraine. Family bonds were so strong and all that was wiped away in just a few months time. The fact that she kept her journals locked up until she felt it was time to share her story with her family shows what a strong and determined woman she was to start a new life in America. Definitely a good listen.
I was glued to the seat in my car; I would pull into work and sit in the parking lot just listening to what happens next. What a life Nona and millions of others experienced, then to keep it all inside until she was able to come to terms with it. I really enjoyed the last disc when they interviewed her son and husband, you could hear the pride and the pain in their voices.
