A Daughter of Many Mothers
Her Horrific Childhood and Wonderful LifeBook - 2017
"'A Daughter of Many Mothers' is the story of Rena Quint, a Holocaust survivor who, after her birth parents and brothers were murdered by the German Nazis, was fortunate to be cared for by other 'mothers'" in the concentration camps and afterwards, finally being adopted by Jacob and Leah Globe in the United States. 'There are two of me,' she says. One person is Rena Quint in 2017 - an international speaker, a great-grandmother, an American who does The New York Times crossword puzzle, an Israeli citizen who has an elegant home in Jerusalem, and a loving husband and family. I frequently attend philharmonic concerts and cook gourmet dinners for friends and dignitaries. 'And then there is the other person, little Fredzia Lichtenstein, born in 1935 in Piotrkow, Poland, a little girl whose entire family is murdered in Holocaust. She is a child who survives in a country of cold, ice, snow, and pain - a motherless girl, frightened all the time, with no coat or shoes, no home, no food, no family. 'In April 1945, when I am nine-years-old and imprisoned in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, there is no food or water for three days. To survive, we drink from puddles, where every kind of scum and pollution is floating. We drink that filthy water, anything to quench our thirst, until we are liberated by the British. How could I have survived the Holocaust? How could anyone have survived?' To this day, Rena Quint continues to give testimony in Israel, the United States, and South Africa. This book explores not only her personal experience, but addresses the social and psychological effects on many of the remaining survivors of those horrific years"-- Amazon.
