Facing the Lion Review by Tanya Carr

Librarian, Southwestern College, Chula Vista, California

Memoirs of a Young Girl in Nazi Europe

Simone Arnold Liebster

 Numerous memoirs of the Holocaust have been published with vivid, moving accounts of personal struggles. This one is no exception, but in Liebster’s memoir the reader witnesses experiences of the Holocaust through the faith of a Jehovah Witness. The reader becomes aware that the Holocaust didn’t affect just one population. This book is informative and compelling in its depiction of a young girl who struggles as a prisoner of war, yet continues to live by her faith.
