Adolescence In Auschwitz - Regina Frankel
Regina Frankel's harrowing story of survival during the Holocaust brings to light new perspectives of the darkest chapter in human history. As a teenager in the Lodz Ghetto in 1940s Poland, Regina was a direct eyewitness to the horrors committed by the Nazis. Along with Regina's firsthand accounts of the crimes of the Third Reich, Adolescence in Auschwitz also brings to light one of formerly taboo subjects of the Holocaust - the suffering caused unto the Jews by their own brothers working alongside the Nazis. Regina depicts with frightening details the cruel actions of Chaim Rumkowski, the Nazi-appointed President of Lodz Ghetto. From sexual control over young women to single-handedly deciding who would live and who would be sent to the gas chambers, he controlled the Jews of Lodz in a manner mimicking the Jews' Nazi masters. After her family is murdered, Regina and two sisters are all that remain. Regina must find the strength to carry her sisters to the end of the war, if they can survive that long.
