To Gaze The Summer Sky

ARIA

What happens when a child is so severely damaged by a father that their imaginary friend never leaves? Nine-year-old Dean Graham’s dad has always been a good man, but that changes when he almost kills his wife in a seemingly unmotivated attack. While witnessing the incident, Dean meets Aria, an angel-like being only he can see. The violence worsens as the years pass, leading to Dean’s struggles with mental issues. Eventually, he escapes home, but disturbing suggestions about the past and Aria’s true nature force a return. Upon entering middle age, a life-changing diagnosis causes Dean to question everything he knows. Can Aria save him from his darkest moment? Based on a true story, ARIA combines equal parts tragedy and dark humour while examining domestic/child abuse, how trauma affects children, and chronic medical conditions. Ultimately, though, it is a tale of never losing hope, no matter what we face.

I Only Wanted to Live: The Struggle of a Boy to Survive the Holocaust

A broad picture of the Holocaust from the point of view of a child

This book is a memoir of a child who is swept into the whirlwind of the Holocaust. The epic history is narrowed down to the struggle of a single boy nicknamed Leosz to survive the war. From age 7 to age 13, he endures all the horrors that the Holocaust brings upon the Jewish people. Life hangs on split-second timing, decision-making in impossibly cruel circumstances, incredible resourcefulness, luck and the help of others, even Germans.

In the Krakow Ghetto, Leosz is saved from three mass deportations to the death camps. He escapes the ghetto, survives for several weeks pretending to be a

Polish street child, and then goes into hiding. Although sentenced to die after being caught, he is instead miraculously reunited with his family in the Plaszow labor camp. A year later, father and son become slave laborers in the Gozen 2 camp in Austria, where his father perishes. Close to death himself, Leosz is finally liberated by the American army on May 5th, 1945.
