Blurb: “If she could find four perfect pebbles of almost exactly the same size and shape, it meant that her family would remain whole.”
Marion Blumenthal Lazan’s unforgettable years that shaped her childhood. Following Hitler’s rise to power, the Blumenthal family was trapped in Nazi Germany. They managed eventually to get to Holland, but soon thereafter it was occupied by the Nazis. For the next six and a half years the Blumenthals were forced to live in refugee, transit, and prison camps, including Westerbork and Bergen-Belsen, before finally making it to the United States. Their story is one of horror and hardship, but it is also a story of courage, hope, and the will to survive.
