Recensione

an astonishing story: both wretchedly sad and oddly uplifting… Giants can scarcely fail to stay with you --Mail on Sunday

Sinossi

During the 1930s and 40s the Lilliput Troupe, a beloved and successful family of singers and actors, dazzled with their vaudeville programme and unique performances. The only all-dwarf show of the time, their small stature earned them fame - and, ironically, ultimately saved their lives. As Hitler's war descended, the Ovitz family - seven of whom were dwarfs - was plunged into the horrors of the darkest moments in modern history. Descending from the cattle train into the death camp of Auschwitz, they were separated from other Jewish victims on the orders of one Dr Joseph Mengele, the 'Angel of Death'. Obsessed with eugenics, Dr Mengele carried out a series of loathsome experiments on the family and developed a disturbing fondness for his human lab-rats, so much so that when the Russian army liberated Auschwitz, all members of the family - the youngest, a baby boy just eighteen months old; the oldest, a 58-year-old woman - were still alive. Based on exhaustive research and interviews with Perla Ovitz, the troupe's last-surviving member, and scores of Auschwitz survivors, authors Yehuda Koren and Eilat Negev deftly describe the moving and inspirational story of this remarkable family and their indomitable will to survive.

5.0 su 5 stelle An Inspiring Read 11 febbraio 2015
Di Grandma Barbara - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
I watched a program on PBS that spoke about this family and so I looked for the book and found it at Amazon. I received it and read it in two days. The story is fascinating and you can hardly put the book down. This is a different story in regards to most concentration camp histories. This family of little people arrived late at Auschwitz and were there less than a year and they were kept in better health because Mengele wanted to keep them for his experiments. The family is truly amazing, they had so much fortitude and bravery. The fact that they lived complete as a family is amazing in itself and when they were finally released it is astounding that the survivors of the camps were not given any real aid in getting back to what homes they had. This story is told very well and with much feeling. I recommend this book to all, we should never forget what happened under the Nazis and we should admire everyone that survived and moved on with their lives. This is an inspiring story.

I'm not sure how I even came to know this book existed, but I'm glad I did. It's an interesting story about a unique family in a life-altering situation. How they came through it is amazing. I DID have a lot of questions while reading this book, which, to me, means the research could have been more thorough, but it's a good book nonetheless, especially if you are a student of the holecaust.

I've read a lot of books on this subject but this book had a different perspective on the war and the people. Could not put it down. I think I will reread it in the future.

5.0 su 5 stelle A gripping book about a strong family 17 ottobre 2016
Di Flo from mo - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
This book is about a strong Jewish family living during the time of the Holocaust. This collection of family members includes 10 siblings and of those 10, 7 were dwarfs. The lives that they lived pre and post WWII were very interesting.
The period of time that they were in Aushwitz and under the eye of Joseph Mengele is a true horror. They were poked/prodded/probed in and on every square inch of their bodies. All of these experiments were done while living under the most stressful living conditions.
And they SURVIVED!!! A must read.

This was a very interesting Auschwitz story that I hadn't heard before. Of course it was sobering, but also inspiring to read of this family's resilience. It was a book club read and while most of us have done a lot of reading about WWII, we agreed that this was a story we hadn't heard a lot about before. However, this was also more than a story about the horrors of Auschwitz because it gives a good picture of what even every day life with dwarfism was like for the family. I won't forget this one.
