The basis for the Emmy-winning documentary ONE SURVIVOR REMEMBERS, this is the memoir of a young Polish Jewess’s enslavement by the Nazis and her ultimate liberation by American soldiers. Grace Conlin takes a detached approach, affecting the pretentious fatalism that lazy actors use to represent tragic dignity. Her heroine lacks the author’s endearing, transcendent life force. Otherwise, both While this narrator possesses a pleasant, expressive voice compatible with Klein’s straightforward grace, her narration doesn’t do justice to all the resonances of the text. Perhaps, considering the subject, that is merciful. Y.R. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: NOV/DEC 97]
