A Delayed Life

A Delayed Life is the breathtaking memoir that tells the story of Dita Kraus, the real-life Librarian of Auschwitz.
Dita Kraus grew up in Prague in an intellectual, middle-class Jewish family. She went to school, played with her friends, and never thought of herself as being different―until the advent of the Holocaust. Torn from her home, Dita was sent to Auschwitz with her family.
From her time in the children’s block of Auschwitz to her liberation from the camps and on into her adulthood, Dita’s powerful memoir sheds light on an incredible life―one that is delayed no longer.

My Review

These types of stories only exist because of the people who survived them were willing to share their stories like Dita. Her story is one that I became invested in right away. Even without trying, Dita had me transported back in time as I stepped into her shoes.

I was there with her from the moment that her family had to leave and were prisoners in the camps. Which you would never wish that life on your worse enemy. To the moment when her father passed away; and her mother and her were released. Finally when she met her husband, got married, and had children.

Readers of Corrie Ten Boom's, The Hiding Place or The Diary of Anne Frank will want to pick up a copy of this book to read. This book is not one to be missed. My heart broke but was mended at the same time while reading this book.
