CLAIMING MY PLACE Coming of Age in the Shadow of the Holocaust

by | Read by Ilyana Kadushin

Young Adult Ages 12+ • 9.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Ilyana Kadushin ably narrates this biography of Barbara Reichmann, a young Jewish woman in Poland at the onset of WWII. Kadushin's voice expresses sadness, anger, and frustration at the increasing discrimination and violence of the Nazis. As fear for her own safety grows, Barbara comes to believe that her Aryan appearance provides her the best chance of safety. Her idea is to hide in plain sight in Germany. Even though the listener knows that Barbara survives, the suspense in the story is palpable, and the losses she suffers are devastating. Helen Reichmann West, the author's daughter, delivers an afterword in pleasant tones that inform listeners about Barbara's life and family after the Holocaust.
