La storia della nonna-bambina



A grandmother-child transmits with delicacy and serenity her memories of “a story that she remembers well” and tells it “from a child to the little ones”. She, a Jew, who survived the deportation with the responsibility of ensuring that the memory of those terrible events that took place is not lost, went through those events as a child without losing the joy of living, indeed drawing from those dramatic experiences the strength to tell them to the future generations. So, a “grandmother-child”: “grandmother” because she dedicates it to her grandchildren, the children of her daughter Daphne, who are the same age as she was when she experienced the concentration camp; “Child” because she addresses all children directly so that they always cultivate positivity and hope within them.

  • The form: aimed at children, this very delicate autobiographical tale gives positivity and hope without neglecting the possibility of providing much food for thought.
  • The transversality of the story: the author, one of the few remaining witnesses, with the help of her daughter, “dialogues” with the very young readers.
  • The themes: hope; joy; the importance of family affections.

“A way to respond to those who, like the author, have raised the problem of testimony after witnesses in recent years” Prof. Deborah D’Auria (holder of the Chair of History of Judaism).
