Author Paul. N. Frenkel tells a story of endurance, courage and hope in his new memoir, “Life Reclaimed: Rural Transylvania, Nazi Camps, and the American Dream” (published by iUniverse).
In April 1944, just two months before the D-day bombing at Normandy, Frenkel was a 14-year-old living happily with his family in the rural Transylvanian town of Hadad, Hungary. Suddenly, without explanation or justification, the family was rounded up with other Hungarian Jews, confined in a factory yard and then herded into cattle cars and shipped off to Auschwitz.
“Life Reclaimed” chronicles Frenkel’s self-described “idyllic childhood,” his survival in four Nazi camps as a teenager, the loss of his parents and most of his other family, his daring escape from the Berga-Elster Camp and his ultimate success in America. Candid and revelatory, his story is a shining example of one man’s triumph over tragedy and his relentless pursuit of the American Dream.
