This was the first time I spoke with someone who had written their own memoir. Most of the time, I intereview straight up biographers who are writing about someone utterly unrealted to them. With Thomas Buergenthal, A Lucky Child: A Memoir of Surviving Auschwitz as a Young Boy, couldn’t have been more personal. As far as I am concerned, he is a hero for surviving hell on earth and I am proud to have given his book a bit of of publicity. So, from April 15, 2009, Thomas Buergenthal talking about his memoir, A Lucky Child: A Memoir of Surviving Auschwitz as a Young Boy.
