History at it’s finest

5.0 out of 5 stars First hand account of a child in a concentration camp from beginning to the end, February 12, 2014 By Valerie Caraotta (CONYERS, GA, US) – See all my reviews
This review is from: Be a Hero: A Witness to History (Paperback)
Many are familiar with history’s recordings of Hitler’s abuse toward the Jews in concentration camps. Despite historical annotation, you are about to read a book based on the life of Anita Ron Schorr that shares a first hand account of her life where her innocence was stolen as a child as her family braved the “Pyramid of Hate” led by Hitler’s regime. I was reminded quickly how life and family dynamics can change from stable and loving to chaotic and uncertain. Author Marion A. Stahl did a wonderful job engaging the reader on Anita’s evacuation and several moves with other Jews that would ultimately lead to family separation and a concentration camp.

As you trace this young life’s calamities beginning at age 9, you may discover in part as I did, that the human optimistic will to survive may be the most important ingredient in trauma. With family suicide being a choice for some, it was March 23, 1943 where the day of transport began and where home no longer existed. In detailed fashion will events capture and enrage you on how such injustices were allowed and carried out by those indifferent to human suffering.

Taken more than 70 years for Anita to share her feelings, she recalls “I kept those memories locked up, feeling ashamed of them for much too long”. Discover the sad statistics of the number of prisoner fatalities. Though a melancholy plot there is a hope that has sprung from the ashes of life as today she lives to speak to audiences, empowering them.

This book is history at its finest as you will gain the inside picture into both event and emotions. Sometimes in life losses can ultimately be gains in other avenues. I recommend this book with a 5-star rating as the contents will captivate you page after page.


Be a Hero


Format: Kindle Edition

Marion A. Stahl writes with rare vision and inspiration, bringing readers the story of the Holocaust through the lens of family. We meet Anita as a young child, amidst her idyllic life of home, family, and community. But as Hitler’s influence grows, the very fabric of their lives begins to unravel as one by one, the family is pulled apart. Anita finds the courage to navigate her changing world and is determined to find her family, to reunite the pieces she has lost.Marion manages to write with such a fresh and authentic voice, that I felt completely transported, as if I were viewing the Holocaust’s infamous events for the first time. Anita, now as an adult speaking to the next generation, says she wants to share her story so that people will stand up and speak out against oppression and bullying of all kinds. Marion has captured that spirit through this book. It’s an intimate and vital call to remember the past and carry its lessons into our future.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Book for Everyone To Read, February 23, 2014
This review is from: Be a Hero: Anita’s Piano (Paperback)
This book is a first hand account of Anita as she survives the Holocaust. As you read the book, you learn about her happy childhood, her close family, and how WWII and the actions of Hitler ruined her entire family. The unimaginable, spending part of her childhood first in the ghettos, then in the concentration camps, is captured in Anita’s gripping tale of survival. Never had I read a book that helped me appreciate the life we have now and feel so grateful for it. I think Anita’s story, as written by Marion Stahl, should be required reading for students in schools to remind children and adults alike that humans have the capacity to be the worst they can possibly be when they act out of hatred, and they have the capacity to be the best they can be when they act out of love and caring, and that it’s important for each of us to choose the latter.
