Ruth Kluger: Still Alive, A Holocaust Girlhood Remembered

4/21/2003; 58 minutes

A coming of age story, Ruth Kluger describes the abuse she met at her own mother's hand, the lifesaving generosity of a woman SS aide in Auschwitz, the prejudices of Allied liberators, and the cold shoulder offered by her relatives when she and her mother arrived as refugees in New York. In "Still Alive," Kluger builds a philosophical argument for the right to live and the right to self-determination. (#7208)
