Thomas Buergenthal, now a Judge in the International Court of Justice in The Hague, tells his astonishing experiences as a young boy in his memoir, A Lucky Child. He arrived at Auschwitz at age 10 after surviving two ghettos and a labor camp. Separated first from his mother and then his father, Buergenthal managed by his wits and some remarkable strokes of luck to survive on his own. Almost two years after his liberation, Buergenthal was miraculously reunited with his mother, and in 1951 he arrived in the U.S. to start a new life.

Now dedicated to helping those subjected to tyranny throughout the world, Buergenthal writes his story with a simple clarity that highlights the stark details of unimaginable hardship. A Lucky Child is an audiobook that demands to be heard by all.

    " An awe-inspiring memoir! Buergenthal's journey is unbelievable, and to have such a clear and substantial account of the Holocaust and concentration camps from a child is incredibly unique. Written by a very wise grown-up, Buergenthal consistently provides insights and reflections on his memories. Inspires a strong conviction to defend and love humanity. "
