Charles Kamerman’s compelling memoir sheds light on an extraordinary life shaped by the horrific evens of WWII. Brutally honest and showing great insight, he examines the role that history and his native country, Belgium, play in his development.
This memoir is a gripping tale of family, warts and all, and as a consequence the resourcefulness that Charles had to cultivate from a very young age. The child became the man and even though fear permeated his existence, his strength and resilience came to the fore.
As a child on the street, hiding in plain sight and displaying immense courage in a myriad of situations, Charles managed to survive the war and eventually created a multi-faceted and rewarding life for himself in Australia.
This is an epic story. Charles Kamerman’s extraordinary life and the people who populate it, will leave the reader reflecting on this memoir long after turning the last page.
