That Holocaust Scream is real and live today.
Yes, there is a time, a place, a scream – The Holocaust Scream. A scream so penetrating that for Rachel Rosenberg, Jewish survivor of 4 concentration camps, it became the central point of her painful concentration camp experiences. Her biggest hurt. As a 14-year-old, Rachel was thrust into cruelty, destruction and death. She developed an instinct, drive and plan for survival under the worst conditions. Rachel helped others survive.
Rachel’s book reveals many parallels with the tragic story of Anne Frank. Rachel and Anne Frank were the same age, had young love, typhus risk, lived in hidden attics and spent time in the Auschwitz Concentration Camp. Both were victim/chroniclers of the Holocaust or Shoah. Fortunately, we have Rachel to tell us about her experiences and the aftermath of the Holocaust.
Unusual style rhythm and pace!
Readers like the unusual style in the book. There is a rhythm and pace that resonates with many readers who have noticed this rhythm. Readers have remarked that the dialogue combined with narrative makes ‘The Holocaust Scream’ an engaging and refreshing read.
For the readers convenience, we have made the font slightly larger. The positive response is worth mentioning. Readers of all ages can read this book as can those whose vision is challenged.
Could you survive this?
In her book, Rachel asks if you, the reader, would have found a way to survive. Not so fast, you have to get the perspective of Rachel’s question. Did you know that Rachel found a way to survive in Auschwitz? How can that be?
Can you imagine being 13 days in a railcar with 150 other people packed like sardines? What were they fed? Where did they go and what happened next?
Rachel Rosenberg’s story is full of Shoah facts. Although Rachel was not able to rescue her personal pictures, she vividly describes many events which are presented to the reader as a kaleidoscope of verbal scenes.
Honest – Raw – True
Ann G. wrote, “ I could still hear her speaking through this book. I remember her phrase, ‘It’s true’. I could hear every word in her own voice. RTU is right about Rachel being a leading lady. I will never forget Rachel! I appreciate this book’s honesty, rawness, and truth.”
‘The Holocaust Scream’ contains 2 poems by people close to Rachel as well as the text of a Bar Mitzvah dedicated to Rachel’s lost brother, Jacob.
As a Holocaust survivor, Rachel found herself without most of her family, no adolescence experiences in the normal sense, her birthday was gone as was her idyllic supporting religious community. Rachel had to reconnect to many things the rest of us take for granted.
In Rachel’s case, there is much more. Along the road to recovery, Rachel had some unusual encounters; a mugging, confrontations with Nazis years after the end of the Holocaust and a difficult time re-connecting to the Jewish community.
In addition to being a Polish Anne Frank, Rachel had a Romeo and Juliet experience at the start of her ghetto experience before her concentration camp internment.
What is a “leading lady?”
Do you know about the leading lady phenomenon? Rachel is a good example. You will meet these special women at various times in your life if you know what constitutes a leading lady. Rachel does not know she is a leading lady, but she was and still is. I had to point it out to Rachel.
Rachel is adamant in her belief that her children and grandchildren have been profoundly affected by the Shoah. You will never see these generational victims placed among the Holocaust victims. Since The Holocaust Scream was published, readers have attested to this fact.
2nd generation 100% affected?
Talia Z. wrote, “I would say this generation (the grandchildren) is definitely affected as well. Maybe not 100%, but definitely affected.”
What do we do about the very real Holocaust denial phenomenon? Beyond keeping the story alive in our classrooms and museums, Rachel and I suggest you send us your comments as we have the ability to add to the text of The Holocaust Scream. Future generations will resonate with today’s readers. You can become part of Rachel’s legacy.
Why not become part of Rachel’s legacy. Add your words to hers. Here’s your opportunity to stand up and be counted among those taking action against those who would cover up the Shoah.
The ravages of the Nazi Holocaust did nor end when the camps gates were forced open. Rachel had to endure even more difficulties. Come in and meet Rachel. Find out about that terrible scream and the aftermaths of the Shoah. Prepare to laugh, to cry.
