The Last Selection

A Child's Journey through the Holocaust

Details

Description
Just before the end of the Holocaust, Dr. Josef Mengele made "the last selection." Goldie Szachter Kalib, then a 13-year old Jewish girl from Bodzentyn, Poland, and her mother were part of that selection. In The Last Selection: A Child's Journey through the Holocaust, Goldie describes her life during World War II. She includes accounts about her charming childhood in Bodzentyn, Poland, her experiences hiding with a Polish Christian family, her time in the slave camp and then Auschwitz, life in the gas chamber, her experiences in Bergen-Belsen, and finally liberation. Portions of The Last Selection: A Child's Journey through the Holocaust were used in the ABC Daytime Emmy-Award winning movie on children in the Holocaust.
