Overview

In Fiet's Vase, Alison Leslie Gold links together harrowing yet ultimately inspiring personal accounts of World War II. Meditating on such themes as kindness, love, and art, these stories shed light on the various strengths that people drew on during a dark period of human history.

From a young Jewish woman who defied death to keep the promise she made to her dead mother to protect her baby sister; to a German boy, the son of a Nazi, who separated from his father to discover a lifelong passion for the theater, the experiences of the individuals recounted here offer a rare glimpse of the personal face of war. How was it possible to survive the terror of those years-what hidden reserves did people summon in order to carry on? The voices raised in this book offer powerful answers to these still deeply relevant questions.

    FIVE STARS

    Pas Jamais

    Never forget! Alison Leslie Gold is once again giving us true stories of the Holocaust. My favorite in Fiet's Vase is the love story of Simon and Cyla Wiesenthal. What a fascinating film it would make, but all of these tales of survival are gripping and heartfelt. I remember when Ms. Gold found Miep Gies and talked her into collaborating with her on Anne Frank Remembered. Before that we never knew about the woman who sheltered the Franks...Fiet's Vase features people in theater, music, art , all survivors of those years of terror. There is much sadness, yes, but thankfully we come away from reading feeling amazed by the human spirit, and also thankful for our own safety and determined to keep our country clean of prejudice and malice, and to think about our current action abroad and the leaders we elected. Ms. Gold writes well of tragedy, no hysteric or melodrama, just the facts, with heart.

    A gallop through horror to survival

    We all have nightmares, but this one was real. In Fiet's Vase we gallop through horror after horror in Europe between 1939 and 1945. There is a thread of hope weaving its way through the book, reminding us of the immeasurable human spirit and of its infinite capacity to survive against the depths of human depravity. This book gives a powerful look, taste and feel of some of those special spirits and the conditions they survived. I am grateful for and inspired by Fiet's Vase, thank you Alison Leslie Gold. Now I must weep for humanity.
