On February 13, we will exceptionally welcome a publisher from Amsterdam, Liesbeth HEENK, who will present:
HOLOCAUST-MEMOIRS OF A BERGEN-BELSEN SURVIVOR,
Classmate of Anne Frank
by Nanette BLITZ KONIG
About the Book
If you like Anne Frank’s diaries you will love these memoirs of Anne Frank’s Classmate
In these compelling Holocaust memoirs, Nanette Blitz Konig relates her amazing story of survival during the Second World War. Together with her family and millions of other Jews she was imprisoned by the Nazi’s. At Bergen-Belsen she had a minimum chance of survival.
Nanette (b. 1929) was a class mate of Anne Frank in the Jewish Lyceum of Amsterdam. They met again in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp shortly before Anne Frank died. During these emotional encounters, Anne Frank revealed how the Frank family hid in the annex. She talked about their subsequent deportation, her experience in Auschwitz and her plans for her diary after the war.
This honest WW2 story, Holocaust Memoirs of a Bergen-Belsen Survivor and Classmate of Anne Frank, describes the hourly battle for survival under the brutal conditions in the camp imposed by the Nazi regime. It continues with her struggle to recover from the effects of starvation and tuberculosis after the war. Gradually she was able to restart her life, marry and build a family.
