Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0810160218, Paperback)November 25, 1943, Paris, France: Roused from sleep by a French policeman's pounding at the door, 11-year-old Lucien Duckstein and his mother were escorted to the local police station and bused to the first of two Jewish concentration camps in which they would spend the following 18 months. The first camp, known to Lucien only as Drancy, housed all the evils associated with Nazi accommodations: lice, scant food, crowded quarters, illness, and unspeakable cruelty. Throughout his stay in the camp, Lucien maintained his humanity despite these surroundings, but the year he spent at Bergen-Belsen left him faithless and forever changed. Written in stark and uncluttered language, Lucien's Story powerfully conveys one child's account of unfathomable horror and describes a life forever scarred by history and experience.
