Upon the Head of the Goat A Childhood in Hungary 1939 1944 Free download ✓ 109 The classic true story of one child's experiences during the holocaustNine year old Piri describes the bewilderment of being a Jewish child during the 1939 1944 German occupation of her. I hate to label this as young adult nonfiction because so many people have a prejudice against any book labeled for children or young adults and so miss out on some wonderful and fine literatureThis autobiography begins in 1939 when a little Jewish Hungarian girl Aranka Davidovitch known to all as Piri is 9 years old and visiting her grandmother Babi on her small farm across the border near the town of Komjaty in the Ukraine Trouble erupts between Hungary and the Ukraine and the border is sealed It is a year before Piri is taken home by her parents back to Beregszasz Hungary after her mother has yet another baby At this time Adolph Hitler is on the move and Hungary is taken over by the Nazis Babi refuses to go to Hungary and leave her little house and land She comments that her daughter Piri s mother is foolish to be having yet another baby she has daughters who are grown and married with their own kids or else in college or workingduring a war Some of the family has fled to the USA and Babi urged the family to send Piri and her sisters there too and even tried to fund it but Piri s mother resists until it is too lateBeing back in Hungary is hard Piri s dad has been dragged into the Hungarian military and ill treated because he is from the Ukraine originally and he is a Jew He is sent off to the Russian front where he becomes a prisoner The family owned a business and a Christian man was left to run it It got to where Jews couldn t run businesses and serve Christians who became a real SOB and refused to give Piri s mother much of the money She had a hard time providing for the family and many of the hardships left me in tears How can you feed your children when you have curfews can t go to the store or even go out until an hour when everything is purchased or go in stores owned by Christians even if you do have ration coupons Piri s mother tried hard to keep her family together and encouraged and she was very clever I never would have thought up some of the amazing things this determined mom did I had to cheer her with everything she tried and she did manage even if barelyI wondered if I could stand reading this knowing as I went in that the only survivors of the war would be Piri and one sister Iboya I knew going in that Babi Piri s mom and dad and sisters and brothers including that war baby girl Joli would die I knew that Piri and her family would be sent along with the Jews in their area to Auschwitz in a cattle car They were told it was a work camp How did little Joli die At that camp Nazis often tossed little toddlers and babies into the air and either bayoneted them as they fell or shot them just for fun but many also were suffocated to death in panic and agony in the gas ovens I have nightmares about it sometimes though I am not Jewish and was born long after the war in the USA I ache for those who were there to suffer Children like Joli haunt me How could we let it happen Why did we wait until we were attacked At any rate this also uplifted and inspired me Courageous Babi resourceful Mom and those sweet sisters who did all they had to do and faced all they had to face without complaint and who even helped hide Jews who piled in from other areas this is my definition of hero I recommend this to everyone of all ages The book actually ends when they are shoved on to the cattle car and we do not have to see their suffering and death at Auschwitz The book is an inspiring story of the lives of this family their courage their love for one another and how they made lemonade when life gave them lemons
