    One thought on “To Life”

    1. What if after going through the hardest experience you ve ever been through in your life there were even hardships that you had to endure In the beginning of To Life by Ruth Minsky Sender we meet a 19 year old Jewish girl, Riva who just escaped from a concentration camp in Germany after the Russian Army liberated her In this book we discover her struggle throughout her life to find her forgotten family, move to America, and of course survive the after effects of a world changing chapter in hist [...]

    2. This book looks at a part of the Holocaust that is often overlooked in fiction what happened to the prisoners after they were freed from concentration camps Life was not immediately improved for them They were in poor physical condition, frightened, and worried about the fate of their families This book shows the struggle to find a place in the world again and to locate their remaining family members From the nonfiction that I have read, this book gives a very realistic account of what could hav [...]

    3. I finished this book last night, and sat down and read The Holocause Lady in a few hours I love the simple language she uses Her story is so important for everyone to read I enjoyed hearing about the displaced peoples camps and her journey to America Thank you Riva for writing your story so that all of us could learn from the past.

    4. So far, To Life by Ruth M Sender is making it s way up my favorite books list It tells an interesting story, informs people of what the holocaust was like, and it is portrays strong characters The one thing it needs to do is slow down This book could probably be three times as long if it just stretched the important moments a bit But besides this, the story is beautiful _ _

    5. To Life was a story that was very sad but also very positive I never wanted to put down my book and stop reading The book left you hanging and at the edge of your seat I did get bored at one little part, but other then that, To Life was a great book To Life was about a Jewish girl, Ruth Minsky Sender She was trapped in the Nazi chambers during the early 1900 s in Poland, Russia, and Germany She lost her family and has always hoped to find them again Ruth got married and created a family After th [...]

    6. As long as there is life there is hope, at least that s what Riva was brought up to believe So when she is freed from a German prison camp for Jews she carries that with her Through trying to find the rest of her family without a home left to travel back to, not knowing who is alive or dead Riva travels with friends and meets her soon to be husband and having her children Through trying to move to America Still searching, searching, searching, even after some members are found still looking for [...]

    7. This is such an important pice of history The first book by Sender, The Cage, tells about the horrors of the Nazi labor and death camps she survived This one tells of the displaced persons camps and how long it took for people to find relatives, find hope, and find new homes This is a piece of history most do not know about We see that the camps were liberated, and we assume and immediate happy ending That is not so Read this.

    8. I first read this book as a young teenager, and it has shaped by understanding of the Holocaust ever since Her voice so strong, so viscerally stark and yet so deeply full of loving grief as she relates her family s story lingers long after you finish the last page 15 years on, it s still with me.

    9. As a sequel to The Cage, I liked this book much better The author provided emotion and detail than in The Cage The first two chapters are the same as the last two chapters in The Cage but I didn t mind because it helped me to know where the story left off It was an easy read I enjoyed reading the life of Ruth after the war.

    10. Although Sender sometimes gets repetitive in her book, her true story is compelling enough to forgive the repetitions and simple writing She is such a strong woman, and I love how she never gave up her mantra As long as there is life, there is hope I m still on the hunt for the 3rd book in this trilogy, The Holocaust Lady.

    11. This book continues Ruth s life after she is liberated from the concentration camp Again, Sender does a wonderful describing what she goes through and you truly feel that you are experiencing it all with her and cheering her on.

    12. I am not sure what happened but this book was very boring in comparison to the first book This one seemed forced instead of being full of the emotions from the heart and soul I wish I would have read the first one and left it at that Not recommended.

    13. This is worth reading It is the second book to The Cage and chronicles the writer s life during the 5 year period after the Holocaust.
