A Lucky Child is a memoir of a young boy, Thomas Buergenthal, who survived Auschwitz and his time after being liberated and living in Germany post WWII. Elie Wiesel, Holocaust survivor, author, professor, political activist, and Nobel Laureate, writes the forward for this book. This book was a captivating read for me even though I have read many books detailing the Holocaust; it seems some new chapter unfolds with some type of torture that you have not encountered before.
