Given To Me For An Honest Review Christian by Disguise: A Story of Survival tells the story of a little girl and what she had to do to survive during the genocide of the Jewish people during the Holocaust.  There have been a lot of stories about what has happened in the war camps and the mass killings during that  time.  But this is the story of a little girl and what she and her family had to endear in order to survive.  She had to deny that she was Jewish,  she took Holy Communion and became Catholic,  she hid behind a false wall in a barn with others,  she was hungry every day and she  didn't understand why.  This is a book of persistance, hard work, being positive, hopeful and knowing that one day it will be better.  She and  her mother end up in the United States and their lives become much better. I recommend this book to all.

REVIEW The book is a story of the author as she was a Jewish child in Poland. This was at the beginning of WWII. This is what her mother and her did to survive. Jewish children under the age of ten were of no use to the Germans. Whenever a child was seen, they were killed, so there weren't too many children that came through. The way most of the Jewish children survived was being falsely Christians. Erna and her mother looked like Poles. Erna was extremely intelligent and had memorized most of the Catholic prayers so when she was confronted, she could say them without any problem. Her mother and herself were saved by the fact that Erna could pull off being Christian. They never gave up. They used their courage to survive along with pure luck. There were times that Erna and her mother came close to going to the Death camps. If you like autobiographies and historical reads, this book can not be passed by. A story of courage, survival and tragedy. Even though the reader knows of the mass killings, it's hard to read about. People who had jobs to do and did them regardless of right or wrong. That is so sad, though true. The author tells her story since so many people from the Holocaust that survived are now getting up there in age and have left this world for a better one. I'm sure the author experienced some of the pain all over again by writing this book, but thanks to the author. A lot of the people today either look the other way or just plain ignore the fact that the Holocaust ever happened. What some people had to go through just to survive. Those that went to the Death camps were destined to die by the masses. This is a story we need to read and then reflect on how horrible this time in history was. Maybe this book will wake some people up and enlighten others. I was given a complimentary copy of CHRISTIAN BY DISGUISE from the author, Erna Kamerman Perry for my view of the book. No other compensation took place.
