MALA'S CAT A Memoir of Survival in World War II

by | Read by Kristin Atherton

Biography & Memoir • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

This amazing memoir of a Jewish girl’s survival in Poland and Germany from 1939-45 is perfectly narrated by Kristin Atherton. Mala Szorer lost her family, but through a series of miracles she was able to survive in the forest around her village. A stray cat named Malach (Hebrew for “angel”) becomes her companion and on many occasions saves Mala from harm. Mala is Torah-observant and throughout the memoir gives glory to “HaShem” (“The Name”—God) for her survival. After the war ends, she survives in several refugee camps, meets relatives in England, and, finally, is married in 1949. Atherton’s pacing, inflection, expression, energy, and pronunciation (including German and Yiddish) are all perfect. It’s hard to stop listening to this once one begins.
