Book Giveaway-A Lucky Child by Thomas Buergenthal, Elie Wiesel

Thank You Brianne at Hachette Book Group for allowing me to host this giveaway.I will be giving away 5 copies of A Lucky Child by Thomas Buergenthal, Elie Wiesel

Country: United States of America
Format: Hardcover
Contributor: Elie Wiesel
Publisher: Little Brown and Company
ISBN: 9780316043403
Publication date: April 2009
Pages: 228
Illustrations: Illustrated

Thomas Buergenthal, now a Judge in the International Court of Justice in The Hague, tells his astonishing experiences as a young boy in his memoir A LUCKY CHILD. He arrived at Auschwitz at age 10 after surviving two ghettos and a labor camp. Separated first from his mother and then his father, Buergenthal managed by his wits and some remarkable strokes of luck to survive on his own. Almost two years after his liberation, Buergenthal was miraculously reunited with his mother and in 1951 arrived in the U.S. to start a new life.
Now dedicated to helping those subjected to tyranny throughout the world, Buergenthal writes his story with a simple clarity that highlights the stark details of unimaginable hardship. A LUCKY CHILD is a book that demands to be read by all.


Just as a matter of interest I wanted to include this link which gives you an idea of everything this man,Judge Thomas Buergenthal has accomplished in his life.This book above should prove to be a story of the amazing human spirit and its ability to conquer all odds.Also maybe a reminder that we all possess this same human spirit and it's entirely up to each individual how we end up using it in this life.
See link here.What a full life!!Makes me wonder how many people died in the holocaust who would have lived productive lives on this earth,possibly making this earth of ours an even better place.
