Mailbox Monday: Two New Books About Holocaust Survivors and How to Tell Their Stories

What books came into your house last week? I got two books about Holocaust survivors that look fascinating.

Shores Beyond Shores: From Holocaust to Hope, My True Story by Irene Butter. Butter was Anne Frank's neighbor in Amsterdam before her family was shipped to a concentration camp. It was decades before she told her story outside a close circle of family and friends.

Ghost Writer: A Story About Telling a Holocaust Story by Beth Benedix. After Benedix ghost wrote a memoir for a holocaust survivor, he urged her to write her own story about what it was like to confront the challenge of telling someone else's history when it "swelled beyond its own boundaries."

Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday, a weekly "show & tell" blog event where participants share the books they acquired the week before. Visit the Mailbox Monday website to find links to all the participants' posts and read more about Books that Caught our Eye.

Mailbox Monday is graciously hosted by Leslie of Under My Apple Tree, Serena of Savvy Verse & Wit, and Vicki of I'd Rather Be at the Beach.
