Livia Bitton-Jackson Message Board

posts on 6/15/2006 3:10:05 PM I have read 'I have lived a thousand years' and also 'Elli - Coming of age in the Holocaust.' The former seems a precis of the latter. But in one book it states that Elli's father died 2 weeks before his liberation in Bergen Belsen and in another it says 2 days before his liberation. Is the author aware of the discrepancies?
posts on 6/6/2006 3:11:52 PM I am honored to mention that i am taking a history course in which i have the honor to have professor Bitton-Jackson teach the course. Ms Bitton-Jackson has so much knowledge to teach that we all can learn from. Ms Bitton-Jackson is one of the nicest people that i have ever meet, and once again i am honor to learn from a living legend.
posts on 5/15/2006 8:16:00 PM Someone below wanted to know where the author got the name "Bitton" from--in the book written about her experiences when she first arrived in America, she described how she met her husband, David Bitton. I assume this was her first husband, and she remarried at some point (whether she was widowed or divorced), hence her current last name "Jackson."

posts on 5/12/2006 10:23:49 AM With all of the people who would like to contact Mrs. Jackson, why does she not provide an address? Numerous people (students and teachers) would love to write to her. I have used her book when I taught junior high and my replacement this year continued using the book. Being able to write to her would be and enlightening and wonderful experience. Why will she not provide an address?

Karla posts on 2/26/2006 11:54:10 AM I have been researching my family roots and came accross Livia Bitton. I immediately bought her book and read it one morning while my kids were still in bed. I found it extremely interesting, but cannot stop wandering where she got her last name of "Bitton" from. My maiden name is Bitton as well. If you can give me any information regarding this I would appreciate it. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
