The Diary of a Survivor
The memoir details the separate lives of Herbert R. Ert and that of his father, Samson Reichstein. In addition to describing Ert's life in the United States, the memoir also describes Reichstein's simultaneous experiences in Nazi-occupied Europe. The author has indicated that, contrary to the text of the memoir, his mother died in Belzec, and not Bergen-Belsen, and that the Anne Frank which he mentions in his memoir was not the diarist. He mistook her for an adolescent of the same name.
