A hidden Jewish child from Belgium : survival, scars and healing / Francine Lazarus
- Elstree, UK : Vallentine Mitchell, 2017
Includes bibliographical references (pages 225-235) and index
Francine Kamerman Lazarus survived WWII in Belgium hidden with strangers, isolated from her family, and moved from place to place. She witnessed murder and was often injured herself. With her father murdered in Auschwitz, her story continues post-war with the young Francine, neglected and abused by her family, being sent into foster care. At 13 she was sent to work and forced to abandon her education. Like most child survivors, she was told to forget about her war experiences. After an involuntary migration to Australia, her life began to improve. She created a loving family and, in middle age, earned a bachelor's and master's degrees.
