Elisabeth Breslav, "That Mad Game: Growing Up in a Warzone"

The book, That Mad Game: Growing Up in a Warzone, an anthology of essays from around the globe, features excerpts from an unpublished memoir by local writer Elisabeth H. Breslav.

As a Dutch child during World War II, Breslav lived through the Nazi occupation of Holland and survived the "Hunger Winter," the extension of the occupation to 1945 in parts of Holland that grew from the November 1944 Allied defeat profiled in the epic A Bridge Too Far.

While there are numerous first-person accounts of the Holocaust, there is a dearth of English-language writings about the Nazi occupation of Europe from the perspective of those non-Jews who suffered through it. Theirs is a story that a dwindling number of survivors can tell, simply because of their advancing age.
