Holocaust Memoirs of a Bergen-Belsen Survivor & Classmate of Anne Frank – A Literary Translation by Rafa Lombardino

Last year, when Rafa Lombardino shared on her personal Facebook page that she would present a session at ATA 58 about her experience translating the memoir of a Holocaust survivor, I knew I would attend that session and read that book! That hit too close to home. Both sides of my family come from European ancestry, but my mom’s side includes Holocaust survivors. Many of my childhood friends also come from families of Holocaust survivors.
