Item description for Hitler Made Me a Jew by Nadia Gould...

Download DescriptionI wrote this book seven years ago. At that time there was much controversy over whether the Holocaust had really happened. I was so upset by articles denying that the Holocaust had happened that I decided to put down my experiences-even if my experiences were light in comparison to the horrors that went on in the concentration camps. Not one day goes by that I don't think about the Holocaust in Germany, Poland, and other countries, and about the silent people who let it happen. I feel grateful to the scholars who are gathering the data of what happened during those years and particularly in 1940 because it was the year that Hitler made me a "Jew." I am a painter and writing was a challenge for me. It became a meditation. I decided to remember as far back as I could, to keep the images clear, to be as honest as I could, and to try to recapture the feelings I had as a child. Then I realized I would have to write about my parents and all the people in my life. I was concerned that I would be gossiping. I decided it didn't matter, that what mattered was recording what I remembered and not making it pretty, except where it fit my recollection-to think that way gave me a sensibility of purity. I was able to get into the same states of mind with writing as I get into when I paint, and the technique worked well for me. Reading back what I wrote was more difficult and upsetting and not at all as when I can tell whether my paintings are good or not. My Bible was Strunk

Reviews - What do customers think about Hitler Made Me a Jew?

The need to remember  Apr 14, 2006
There can never be too many accounts of the suffering caused by the Holocaust. The need to remember, especially in light of current man-made threats that face us all, is crucial. And it is to this end, to remember and not to forget, that Nadia Gould recounts, with frank honesty, the experiences of her youth and how they led to her, and her family's, eventual escape from Nazi-occupied France.

Nadia Gould writes from the perspective of her childhood self, and her detailed recollections and captivating descriptions endear the reader to her while at the same time exposing the unfiltered truth of her upbringing, her own views and the way in which she and her family were forced to give up their chosen way of life because of Nazi and Vichy-government persecution.

This small book should be read, and will be enjoyed, by those who seek to learn from what others have been forced to experience and to overcome.
Must Read.  Jan 17, 2006
Nadia Gould's book, Hitler Made Me a Jew, should be required reading for all high school students. Why? Quite simply, it captivates. Gould's book begins with her earliest childhood recollections- which are both pithy and fragmented- allowing the reader to quickly become familiar with her as a child while also skillfully rendering the rich history of 1930's Europe into the backdrop of her daily life.
The rawness of Gould's book is refreshingly honest- imperfect persons in an increasingly imperfect world. With Hitler's rise and the Holocaust, Gould's first person narrative of her harrowing journey from possible victim to Holocaust survivor affords the reader the invaluable opportunity to intimately experience what some deny (e.g. President of Iran)or wish us to forget.
Let's not forget.
