Item description for 1111 Days in My Life Plus Four by Moshe Dor Ephraim Sten...
In 1941, in Zlochow, Poland, where Ephraim Sten lived with his family, the SS rounded up Jews into ghettoes. Thirteen-year old Sten, who had started a diary, fled with his mother to the countryside where a Catholic-Ukrainian couple hid them and several relatives. Sten's account of those years was harrowing. Fifty years later he had the diary translated into Hebrew for his children and responded to each of his own youthful entries. "For decades," he writes, "I was not conscious of the load crushing my soul. This damned writing has newly rediscovered everything." 1111 Days in My Life Plus Fouris a double testimony of the boy and the man he became---an extraordinary record and, in itself, a distinctive work of literature. As Myra Sklarew writes, "the boy and the man he became finally stand side by side in an attempt to free themselves from the voices, faces, images of their shared past."

The true-life memoir of a boy who lived in hiding for nearly three years in Nazi-occupied Zloczow Aug 11, 2006
Flawlessly translated from the original Hebrew, 1111 Days in My Life Plus Four is the true-life memoir of a boy who lived in hiding for nearly three years in Nazi-occupied Zloczow, a small Polish village now in the Ukraine. Hidden with his family and a number of other Jews by a Catholic family, he survived and moved to Israel in 1957. 1111 Days in My Life Plus Four reveals his inner life and the permanent impression his past years of hiding left upon him. A dark revelation of the difficulties of coping with the painful past, 1111 Days in My Life Plus Four is vivid and recommended for Holocaust studies collections.
