Sweet Lemons: Memories from an Internment Camp on Mauritius (1940-1945)
Wheatmark, Inc., 2011 - 112 pagina's
Rachel Springmann-Ribak and her family fled German-occupied Poland in 1940. She was three years old. After a harrowing journey in dilapidated ships, they and the surviving refugees ended up in Mauritius, where they were incarcerated in separate men's and women's camps for five years.
"Sweet Lemons" offers a glimpse into an almost forgotten tale in the history of the Holocaust. Through Rachel's eyes we experience the harsh conditions, the loss of dignity, the small, stolen pleasures, and finally their arrival in the Promised Land.
