April 1995
All But My Life is the unforgettable story of Gerda Weissmann Klein's six-year ordeal as a victim of Nazi cruelty. From her comfortable home in Bielitz (present-day Bielsko) in Poland to her miraculous survival and her liberation by American troops--including the man who was to become her husband--in Volary, Czechoslovakia, in 1945, Gerda takes the reader on a terrifying journey.

Gerda's serene and idyllic childhood is shattered when Nazis march into Poland on September 3, 1939. Although the Weissmanns were permitted to live for a while in the basement of their home, they were eventually separated and sent to German labor camps. Over the next few years Gerda experienced the slow, inexorable stripping away of "all but her life." By the end of the war she had lost her parents, brother, home, possessions, and community; even the dear friends she made in the labor camps, with whom she had shared so many hardships, were dead.

Despite her horrifying experiences, Klein conveys great strength of spirit and faith in humanity. In the darkness of the camps, Gerda and her young friends manage to create a community of friendship and love. Although stripped of the essence of life, they were able to survive the barbarity of their captors. Gerda's beautifully written story gives an invaluable message to everyone. It introduces them to last century's terrible history of devastation and prejudice, yet offers them hope that the effects of hatred can be overcome.

"Soul searching and human . . . A moving personal testament to courage."--Herbert Mitgang, The New York Times

"An unforgettable reading experience . . . All But My Life is one of the most beautifully written human documents I have ever read. In this respect it is as sensitive and 'disturbing' a story as is The Diary of Anne Frank."--Library Journal

"Gerda Weissmann Klein moves you, and not just because the story she can tell is so horrific. It is the passion with which she looked through the horror and found a heart-felt and basic goodness in humanity . . . All But My Life is filled with wonderful acts of decency and normalcy, even as she describes three years in labor camps and three months of a forced winter march from Germany to Czechoslovakia."--Royal Ford, The Boston Globe

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderfully Moving 22. Juli 2000
Von Nikki
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I read this book very recently as part of my school system's summer reading program. I had expected it to be an intriguing and saddening story about a girl's experiences in the Holocaust, but I did not expect it to be so moving, inspirational, and relateable true story. This book opened myself, and my friends to what these women must have felt. The fact that Gerda was our age at the time of her captivity and was going through the exact same experiences that we were help us to understand what was going on and how she must have felt about personal problems and boys, and basically everything that teenage girls still go through. We realized how truly lucky we were to live our lives free and have all of our friends to go to when we need help, and not have to worry where and if we are having our next meal. I recommend this book to anyone, any age, and sex, any race. Although she is a teenage girl, anyone can profit from this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the most moving books I have ever read! 15. Januar 1999
I want to thank Gerda for sharing her experiences in Nazi Germany. Her accounts are so horrific, but within it all I also felt her profound sense of hope and faith. In reading her memoir I was moved by the thought of what an incredible plan God had in store for Gerda. She survived to tell not only her story but that of so many Jews who lost there lives in WWII. Gerda, God is working through you to share with the world what Mankind is capable of.....ManKind, such an ironic word to use in that sentence, for Gerda saw very little kindness in most of Nazi Germany, yet she lights the precious moments of when kindness was shown to her and her friends. It is a book I shall never forget, and when I am feeling challenged in my own life, I will pick up Gerda's book and re-read, and re-read, for I know I have more to learn for this work. Thank-you Gerda! God Bless!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Tribute to the Human Spirit 15. Januar 2000
I first saw Gerda Weissmann Klein on the Oprah show. Then I was so fortunate to hear her speak at Northern Kentucky University. With her lovely accent, she explained how memories of her brother, father, and mother kept her spirit from faltering into the depths. She told us how a friend had shared a single raspberry. She shared with us the command of her father to wear her skiing boots in the heat of summer which was one of the factors that saved her life. This book gives the miraculous details of her life during the Nazi take-over and a brief glimpse into her life during and after her liberation. I am a teacher and I believe this would be a great book to be read to students of the appropriate maturity level. God bless you, Gerda. Vivian Schardt

5.0 von 5 Sternen An emotionally uplifting life story. 5. Juli 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is one of the best books on the Holocaust period thus far. It is not a detached narrative of horrors but an intimate experience in the life of a particular family whose placid existence is shattered by forces they could not comprehend. In narrating her experiences in such a profoundly intimate way, Gerda Weissman made me cry when she cried and laugh when she laughed. Her story is a fitting testament to the unassailable endurance of family love and values.
You finish this book in tears, but not from despair, but rather from the emotional uplifting that this remarkable woman provides with her life story.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An etraordinary novel filled with hope and terror. 20. April 2000
This novel is one of the best novels about the Holocaust that I have ever read. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The horrifying tale about one young woman's experience as a slave laborer to the Nazis touches your heart. Not only does it tell the tale of the Holocaust, but it is a tale of hope and survival. I would not recommend this book to anyone under the age of 13 however because the subject matter might be to much for them to bear. I myself am 13, and I found myself in tears towards the end of the novel. This wonderful novel by Gerda Weissmann Klein is a definate must read.

4.0 von 5 Sternen If for nothing else, read this book for Abek 3. Dezember 1999
It is a wonderful depiction of the horrors of war and the story is heroing. I found the characters surrounding Gerda amazing, selfless and wonderful. It's full of fear, confusion, hatred, love and all the other emotions WWII brought out in everyone. Abek makes the book unique and lovely, an amazing interlude from the atrocities. As with all holocaust memoirs, I can't help but be racked with questions about the war. I loved this book, but I felt no deep connection to the main character and therefore,I can not classify it as one of my favourite books.

Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Gerda tells this story with a simplicity that is the opposite of many Holocaust survival stories. Instead of giving us the gory and sensational details that (admit it) we are looking for in a book like this, she concentrates on the extreme emotion of the situation. The book shows, in a way, that it was harder for those left behind--survivors--than those who died at the hands of the Nazis. It does not detail the violence of the Holocaust, but instead is a story of one girl's reliance on strength, and a little bit of luck, to carry her through
