The moving story of Professor Shaul Harel’s life from darkness to light, from Holocaust survivor to world expert in pediatric neurology and child development.
This is the story of Prof. Shaul Harel, formerly Charlie Hilsberg, who lost his shadow in 1942 at only five years old, when he was separated from his family and surroundings and saved from the furnaces of Auschwitz by the Belgian resistance.
This book reveals his story, from his time as a “hidden child” in France and Belgium during the Holocaust, through his experiences in orphanages, his immigration to Israel, the serious injury he sustained in his military service, the choice to study medicine, and lastly the mark he has made in the field of pediatric neurology and child development in Israel and in the world.
A story of overcoming impossible trauma and reaching professional and personal success against all odds. The book channels a universal message of survival, optimism, and hope.
I received "A Child Without A Shadow" by Shaul Harel to review on my blog!
This book is a memoir of a Holocaust survivor named Shaul Harel. It tells how he was separated from his family at the young age of 5 years old. Also, how he was able to avoid the furnaces of Auschwitz. And how he later became the world expert in pediatric neurology and child development.
This story is very inspirational and empowering. A very well-written captivating and intriguing book to add to any book collection.
I highly recommend it!
