My Bridges of HopeMy Bridges of Hope by Livia Bitton-Jackson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This was an enjoyable autobiography that was quite easy to read. It is written in a style that would appeal to a teenager, while carrying the sophistication of a wise college professor.



This is the story of a young Slovak girl in the years following her and her mother's liberation from Auschwitz. The reader becomes a witness to Elli's development from a 14-year-old to a very talented young woman. The story gives the reader insight into the challenges of life as a refugee and an immigrant.



I was surprised by how learning more about Elli's story made me want to better understand the stories of "illegal" residents in the United States today.
