little-known history

by dmbc on Jun 24, 2007

I bought this as a gift for someone who had spent time in the refugee camp described in the book, but before I gave it to her, I read it -- after all, it's a used book -- one more reading couldn't hurt it. It really touched me, and not just because I knew someone who had experienced this. The story is told from the point of view of people who worked at this camp, where I had heard about it from the other side -- from someone who had lived there as a refugee. But despite the difference in perspective, some of the stories that I heard about the time in the camps before coming to America were in this book, and in some cases, things that I heard about the camp began to make more sense when I read about it from the other side. After all, I was reading the experiences as written by an adult, where the stories I heard were the remembrances of a child. Even if you don't personally know anyone who was at this particular camp, the history of that time and of those people who suffered through the war, and many who eventually made it to America and other friendly shores, is part of our heritage. While it's not written as professionally as most books these days, that's also part of the charm of the book. You're reading something written by someone who lived there and experienced these things, and sometimes it feels like you're peeking over her shoulder. I sat down to read this book, not expecting much, but once I started, I couldn't put it down until I finished it. And that doesn't happen very often.
