A Raft on the River, A Great Read A Raft on the River is a story about Miriam Feuer, a thirteen year old Polish girl. The novel follows Miriam's struggles attempting to survive World War II. When the Nazi's capture her family Miriam must survive on her own. She finds safety in the countryside, but soon she finds herself amid the people trying to kill her.  This story comes from a different perspective. While most holocaust stories come from the perspective of German Jewish people, this story follows the life of a young Jewish, Polish girl, Miriam. The main character's diverse background makes it easy to relate. Jewish readers can relate to the main character's keeping kosher, and readers from Polish families readers can relate to the customs Miriam and her family hold dear. Miriam had to leave everything behind and we, as readers, feel empathy. “Poland held nothing for us anymore” she left behind her entire country to survive.  A Raft on the River is a true story. Miriam Feuer Sorger was born in 1926 Poland. The author, Stuart W. Mirsky worked with Miriam for 6 months to help her recount her memories and put them into book form. It was not until 2007 that Miriam could bear her memories and relive them. As to be expected some of Miriam's memories had faded over the years and some details needed to be added to allow a complete story.
