A recipient of the Jewish Book Council's Natan Notable Book Award, author/narrator Michael Frank brings a friendly, professorial tone to this biography of Stella Levi, a 99-year-old Holocaust survivor. Levi grew up on the island of Rhodes, part of a group of "Judeo-Spanish-speaking Sephardic Italian Jews." Frank spent six years and 100 Saturdays visiting with and listening to Levi's remembrances of her family life. She spoke reluctantly of her horrific WWII experiences under the fascist regime, of the unbearable transport conditions to the concentration camps, and of the loss of loved ones. Occasional recordings of Stella's voice make this even more an audiobook treasure. Frank remains an objective storyteller offering a clear-eyed look at one woman whose strong will helped her to survive. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2022]
