But You Did Not Come Back

But You Did Not Come Back - Marceline Loridan-Ivens, Judith Perrignon 3.5 Stars

" You might come back because you're young, but I will not come back" Marceline Loridan's father to her in 1944.

This is a moving Novella written in the style of a letter from a daugher to her father. Marceline and her father were both taken to concentration camps and separated and she survived to tell her story.

This short book is very well written and I love how it centers around a letter Marceline receives while in the camp from her father and how years later she has no recollection of what was in that letter but she uses this book to reply to her father's letter and in doing so gives us a glimpse of what her life was like while in the camp and her struggles with life when she returns to her family

I have read a great deal of books relating to this period of history and I always find something new and interesting in each book I read.

I listened to this on on audio and the narrator was very good.
