When asking anyone what the Holocaust is, there is a very standard answer as to what it was. It is infamously known as the mass killings and imprisonment of Jewish people throughout most of Western Europe. What people fail to acknowledge is that there is more to the Holocaust than this “standard answer.” There have been multiple accounts of what it was like to be in the Holocaust such as the famous books The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank and Night by Elie Wiesel.

However, A Lucky Child provides a different perspective on the Holocaust. As the title indicates, it is a book about how Buergenthal was able to outlast the most infamous concentration camp: Auschwitz. It is an inspiring story and puts the reader into perspective about all the children who had been killed during the Holocaust, yet he had survived.
