Book Giveaway: A Lucky Child

Win a copy of A Lucky Child by Thomas Buergenthal!

Here's a description from the publisher:
Thomas Buergenthal, now a Judge in the International Court of Justice in The Hague, tells his astonishing experiences as a young boy in his memoir A LUCKY CHILD. He arrived at Auschwitz at age 10 after surviving two ghettos and a labor camp. Separated first from his mother and then his father, Buergenthal managed by his wits and some remarkable strokes of luck to survive on his own. Almost two years after his liberation, Buergenthal was miraculously reunited with his mother and in 1951 arrived in the U.S. to start a new life.

Now dedicated to helping those subjected to tyranny throughout the world, Buergenthal writes his story with a simple clarity that highlights the stark details of unimaginable hardship. A LUCKY CHILD is a book that demands to be read by all.

To enter, just leave a comment below with your name and e-mail address. Contest ends March 19. Check back on the 20th to find out if you won!

I think books about the holocaust are so meaningful. Hopefully they help us to never repeat atrocities against humanity. (Gee....I'm sounding serious here aren't I?!?)

Our lives have changed so drastically since the 1950's ... I feel blessed. I sometimes need to read books like The Lucky Child to reinforce the fact that not everyone has lived the American dream like I did. I'd like to win this.
