Memoirs of a Survivor

Like Tolstoy, Golitsyn tells the story of a family saga - of love and happiness, terror and endurance - while also drawing a panoramic picture of a world that was about to be destroyed.

The Golitsyns were one of Russia's most powerful families until the Revolution turned their world upside down and life became a battle to survive. Sergei Golitsyn was just eight-years-old, his head full of stories about knights in shining armour, but the reality was a bowl of gruel for supper and panic when there was a knock at the door. Golitsyn longed to be a writer, but in fear of his life he fled Moscow to work on remote construction sites deep in Siberia, before fighting with the Red Army across Europe to Berlin. Written in secret, his memoirs paint a rich and colourful picture of life in Stalin's Russia. Like Tolstoy, Golitsyn tells the story of a family saga - of love and happiness, terror and endurance - while also drawing a panoramic picture of a world that was about to be destroyed.

A memoir of growing up in a dysfunctional family in the United States during the 1970s and 80s, Lora Lee describes how she responded to a chaotic world by closing in on herself and building a shell around her, a shell which is cracked open when she endures cancer treatment for the second time and is forced to take stock of her life up to that point. Goodbye Mommy explores our relationships with our families, whether completely dysfunctional, adoptive, or more conventional, but the book's real importance lies beyond that in the way it raises the question of how far our families, upbringing and traumas suffered can seriously affect our health, both immediately and in later life. Lora Lee's story is honestly told, without being mawkish or self-pitying. Her recovery from breast cancer provides a happy and hopeful ending.

Born in Berlin in 1922, James Bachner was a German Jew during the darkest days of the Third Reich. Once a happy child in a well-to-do German family, as the years passed Bachner faced first ridicule and persecution, then imprisonment and deprivation. Attributing his survival to a combination of strength and being in the right place at the right time, Bachner’s memoir is a poignant and often horrific account of Jewish struggles during the days of World War II. Beginning with his idyllic childhood, Bachner expresses the range of emotions he experienced as the Nazis transformed his homeland into a nation where he and his fellow Jews were no longer welcome. He describes the volatile political atmosphere and the fears inspired in all Germans by tales of the concentration camps. In addition, he tells of the belief many Jews held that the West would step in and put an end to Hitler’s reign. The work then details the realities of life in a concentration camp. The end of the war, Bachner’s reunion with his remaining family members and his eventual relocation to America are also discussed.
