On The Raft: The Holocaust - Survival and Reconciliation ebook

by Claude Abraham

This autobiography is a wonderful story of a Holocaust survivor who, as a child, eluded the Nazi storm and who, as an adult, returned to his roots to reconcile with his past, further understand his youth ,and find a sense of direction. Including photographs and documents, On the Raft describes the turmoil of an abandoned young Jewish boy in occupied France, and how he avoided the death camps. The story is unlike the vast majority of Holocaust books, as it is a survivor's account of a young orphan evading the occupying German military authorities, rather than a historic look at life and death in Nazi concentration camps.
This is not a typical Holocaust story. Wonderfully written, it comes to life through the eyes of a precocious little boy. A must read. I'm sending a copy to Oprah!
This is an amazing, must-read book, and I second the previous reviewer for wanting to recommend this book to Oprah. Claude Abraham is a gifted writer whose remarkable life story brings laughter, tears, and a sense of wonderment. Instead of holding on to all the suffering he saw and experienced, he strove to better himself, looking always for the positive as he moved through a life that took him literally all over the world. The Raft takes us from his childhood in Lorsch, to his life in France and some of the saddest stories of his life in Europe, to his immigration to America, to his service as an American soldier in Korea, to his rise to become one of the most brilliant scholars in his field, to finally his return to Lorsch, where it all began. At last a book of survival that doesn't evoke sympathy, but rather, understanding.
