Childhood in the Third Reich World War II and Its Aftermath
|Author: ||Abikhaled, Kaye|
“With cinematic elegance, Kaye Abikhaled allows us into the world of a six year old in Germany in WWII. . . . This epic freeverse saga has both personal and public significance. The anecdotal style allows us to see through the eyes of a witness of the times – to see war by its effects upon civilians, and to see the results after war – with a success story worthy of the best American classics. Kaye has woven intricate portraits of people and times long gone, but remembered cinematically and accurately. . . . Yet this is more than a war story – the humanity of her descriptions empowers us to trust that even in the worst of times, some salvation occurs.” – Thom Woodruff (Thom the World Poet_
“Her work is interesting as a historical document. Her experiences are moving and beautifully expressed. Her style is vivacious yet timeless.” – Lisa Kahn
