Eight-year old Sori Bernfeld and her younger sister Ruti are enjoying a charmed childhood. Born into wealth and prominence, and raised by loving parents and close-knit extended family in Bratislava, Czechoslovakia, they must suddenly run away to nearby Hungary in a desperate attempt to escape the Nazis. Miraculously, they manage to stay one step ahead of the enemy by constantly changing identities and fleeing to the rooftop in the middle of the night. Smuggled out of the Munkacevo ghetto, they pose as gentile children, and eventually leave Budapest with the famous Kasztner Transport. Diverted to Bergen-Belsen for six harrowing months, they witness the awesome holiness of the Satmar Rebbe and are eventually transported to Switzerland, on their way to Palestine and the establishment of the new state.
Here is a true firsthand account of deep faith and bitachon, of incredible Divine providence and inspiring determination to serve Hashem. Based on the interviews of Rosalyn Livshin and written by the renowned author Devora Gliksman, “Sori’s Story” is rich with historical and biographical detail as it chronicles wondrous events in traumatic times, seen through the eyes of a child. Fascinating and engrossing, it will touch your heart and soul as no other book can.

    The autobiography of Sori Karus is not only a deeply powerful and moving story about the holocaust as it occurs through the eyes of a small child but also has tremendous merit as a lesson in Bitachon. I particularly enjoyed this book on an historical level. The Jewish European pre-war landscape came alive as well as Israel as Israel in its infancy.

    A rich read. Makes one proud to be a Jew. As an added bonus but integral to the book is Sori's exemplary fulfillment of the mitzvah of honoring parents. Can't wait for the Hebrew translation to share with extended family.
