The result is this remarkable memoir, a fifty-year chronicle of survival and its aftermath. With brutal honesty, Ligocka recollects a childhood at the heart of evil: the flashing black boots, the sudden executions, her mother weeping, her father vanished then her own harrowing escape and the strange twists of fate that allowed her to live on into the haunted years after the war. Powerful, lyrical, and unique among Holocaust memoirs, The Girl in the Red Coat eloquently explores the power of evil to twist our lives long after we have survived it. It is a story for anyone who has ever known the darkness of an unbearable past and searched for the courage to move forward into the light.
"This poignant...tale does honor to all children bewildered by horror
--Thomas Keneally, author of Schindler’s List
"This is not only a Holocaust memoir but also a story of one woman’s quest for contentment."
“A fascinating work that reads like a novel.”
