Very good book... I wish it was more widely read and it should be studied in school, more so than Anne Frank. Alicia shows a courage to face things that people shouldnt face. Things people dont DESERVE to face.
Woo woo my history teacher is gonna try and get Alicia to speak in our class.
connections to author FOR TEH WINZ!!

I just started studying the Holocaust in detail this year in school. We were assigned books to read depending on our level of reading. I was assigned Alicia: My Story. This book literally sent shivers down my spine with every page that i flipped. I have to write a literary anaylisis on what i read and im having a hard time. Everytime I start to write tears stream down my face. Alicia Jurman symbolizes gallantry and devotion. She seems to show no fear during the horrendous events during the Holocaust. I would never be able to survive 1/4 of what Alicia did. Americans today take advantage of their life filled with freedom. They do not know what it is like to suffer because of what you belive. They are dismisive at the fact that because the Holocaust happened in the past it is unimportant. You Alicia make it hard for me to forget. Your strenght, power and love for yoru people. I will never forget you. Thank you.
