Share Article

New book by Alicia Appleman-Jurman is the ideal companion to her best-selling Holocaust memoir "Alicia: My Story"

Alicia Appleman-Jurman, Holocaust survivor and bestselling author of "Alicia: My Story", presents a collection of stories that answer two of the questions readers ask her most frequently after reading her book: “How old should you be to read this book?” and “What happened next?”

“Six Cherry Blossoms” is a tale of survival written for children, presented in larger type for children and parents to share. Written originally in response to a student who was not old enough to attend her presentation at school, Six Cherry Blossoms tells the adventures of a cherry blossom who survives the destruction her orchard, only to land and thrive in the most unlikely place imaginable.

“Cyprus” is the story of Alicia’s time in a British concentration camp in Cyprus - it is the immediate sequel to “Alicia: My Story”, and offers a first-hand account of that less well-known period in history.

“I Love Israel” tells of Alicia’s first day in school at Mikveh Israel, an agricultural school near Tel-Aviv, where an orange can be a thing of beauty, and one should never try to trick a farm girl.

“Childhood Memories” recalls Alicia’s life before the war. It is the immediate prequel to “Alicia: My Story”, and gives a glimpse of the upbringing that gave her the strength to survive what was to come.

Fans of "Alicia: My Story", and new readers alike, will find in these stories inspiration, and a greater understanding of life before, and immediately after the Holocaust.
