I just finished reading your beautiful book. Bravo! What an accomplishment. There are so many nice touches. The character of Mordechai serves an important role, almost anchoring Margot's character. Her experience with midwifery is fantastic, and I love it that you gave Margot a chance to show Anne her skills at Westerbork! And the religious background is profound, too. I've read that young women didn't want to die a virgin, so that seemed very true. I loved Margot meeting Mordechai at Auschwitz. Anne seemed very true throughout. I loved how much comfort the diary gave Margot! The ending was so delicate with Margot circling back through childhood, her attachment to her unborn children, her craving Gabriella and babies in general. When the Anne Frank Center is moved into its new space, I would like to sell your book in our bookstore. And when we move in the fall, it would be great to include you as a guest speaker in Celebrate Independent Thinking, our lecture, film, and performance series. Have you had any luck yet with finding a teaching position? Let's keep in touch. I would like to partner with you. Best,
Review from Amazon.com:
The Silent Sister: The Diary of Margot Frank (Hardcover)
Great Story!, April 28, 2011
This is a terrific idea: The holocaust from the viewpoint
of the "other" sister. The author creates a compelling
voice in Margot Frank, three years older than her sister
Anne. There's warmth, horror and poetry in her story. Mazal
Alouf Mizrahi succeeds in conveying all the hopes and dreams
of this young woman, as well as the heartbreak of her dawning
realization that they would never be fulfilled.
I strongly recommend it!
