It's full of sad memories, forgotten people and events. The book is written in a very free flowing style which makes all these memories clearer. The constant repetition of points, especially on how she grew up too soon, diluted the impact of the overall theme. I enjoy stories based on WWII events. Three Voices made me feel the sadness. Every Holocaust survivor has a unique story. The key point to this book is that survivors’ stories didn’t end in 1945. They continue through to the present day and should never be forgotten. An authentic story, Three Voices is a great read I highly recommended read.

    Thoroughly enjoyed This is a different take on a Jewish Family during WWII. They were in the Warsaw Ghetto and managed to escape. The daughter at only 3 yrs. old;along with her mother are separated from the father and taken to a safe house. They have a cover story for the mother, but not the little girl. She is hidden in a huge oven during the day and sleeps with her mother at night. The story is told by 3 separate people. A very interesting way to tell this story.

    Three Voices is a Holocaust novel by Nora Sarel. It is written in three different viewpoints and voices to tell the story. It is a very different technique and this story lends itself well to it although it is a bit confusing for the reader. Lena, or Helen, was born in Krakow before World War II. Her Father worked for the water engineering firm and was responsible for all the pipes and water channels as well as the sewers in Krakow. Her Mother was beautiful and made a wonderful home for them. Sh Three Voices is a Holocaust novel by Nora Sarel. It is written in three different viewpoints and voices to tell the story. It is a very different technique and this story lends itself well to it although it is a bit confusing for the reader. Lena, or Helen, was born in Krakow before World War II. Her Father worked for the water engineering firm and was responsible for all the pipes and water channels as well as the sewers in Krakow. Her Mother was beautiful and made a wonderful home for them. She was only 3 ½ years old when the war broke out. The war took her childhood. As their home was in the area of the ghetto, seventeen or more people moved into their apartment. Her Father arranged for them to escape through the sewers and go into hiding with the aide of Max and Mr. and Mrs. Stefanik, The various places they stayed and how they escaped make the first story very intriguing. She was in hiding for 5 years. After the war, she went to Israel and ultimately moved to the US. She felt rootless and really didn’t know who she was. Was she Lena from Poland, Ilana from Israel, or Helen from America? She began to look for her roots. What she finds in parts 2 and 3 about who she is, makes her angry since she didn’t know any of this before. The book is confusing until you figure out how it is set up and what is happening to Lana. At first, I didn’t think I would even be able to finish it; but after finding the key to understanding her story and how the book is set up, it is fun and interesting.

Bernie Sanders, another avowed Communist, and former Jew like Hitler, is trying to do the same with the entire US. They are accomplishing that mission with support of the media and no real resistance by citizens ... as happened in Germany. Everyone of all religions should read this book and know history repeats itself.

    Sad story I have this book give stars because it is a story most of us never even thought about. We know about what happened during WWII, but this never crossed out minds. That people would have to change their identities, not once, but over and over again is unimaginable. I'm sure some people must have become insane from that constant changing of self. Also from living lies, living in gear and being on the move so much. Terrible commentary on humankind. Sad story I have this book give stars because it is a story most of us never even thought about.

    Wow...A deeply affecting story An un-put-downable read. Three characters share their different experiences of the story of one Jewish family throughout and just after WWII. A fascinating take on the effects of the Holocaust on the non-Jewish Polish citizenry as well as the Jewish family, and how each change in their lives affected them in the long run. A brilliant way to tell this story and an excellent read which also expanded my understanding of the Holocaust.A MUST-READ!

    This fictionalized Holocaust memoir of three parallel stories told in the first person. Told as oral history that lacks the interviewer’s voice, “Three Voices” is sometimes confusing and often sad as Holocaust memoirs are.

    Compelling read. Once I began reading this novel, I could not stop. Definitely a different view of the tragedies of WW 2; combing Jewish & Christian beliefs. The plot involves two families whose lives are parallel yet complete opposites. The included photos add a compelling sense of sorrow for both families.

    Different perspective This is the eleventh book i have recently read about the holocaust and it was a totally different perspective. I enjoyed it as much as possible, considering the content. It disturbs me greatly, since antisemitism is still a major fear in both the United States and Europe. Shalom

    Good story I say it's a good story but it's a very sad story well written. We didn't go through what people of Europe had to endure and can't quite sympathise but we can empathize . I wonder what happened to her parents. Good story I say it's a good story but it's a very sad story well written.

    This is Book Worth the Time That WW2 was a difficult time goes without saying. That We did unspeakable things to each other goes without saying, but rarely is a story told of that time that brings forgiveness to the fore, and this is such story.

    An exceptional book. I've read a lot of Holocaust novels and this one was very different. The story is told by three different people each of which fills in missing parts of the story. But the outcome is not what one might expect. Well written in 3 different styles, one for each voice. An exceptional book. I've read a lot of Holocaust novels and this one was very different.

Second Voice I don't remember. Third Voice I want to forget. Quite simple. Right? No. It's not that simple as you are thinking. And you will understand that only once you enroll yourself for Three Voices in the institute run by Nora Sarel.

And you will understand that only once you enroll yourself for Three Voices in the institute run by Nora Sarel. You will, in fact, have to qualify in all the three semesters of the course. These three semesters are First Voice, Second Voice, and Third Voice. In reality, these are the three sections of the book. There are 13, 9 and 5 chapters in each of those. Its story has many aspects. Firstly, it reflects the relationship between Jews and Polish. Secondly. it is the story of a family, in fact. Thirdly, it is a life story having a lot of elements of truth based on the testimonials of Holocaust survivors. There is a mention of a very beautiful poem of the Israeli poet Astar Shamir in the introduction of Three Voices. Nora Salel calls this book a combination of truth and fiction. In fact, poetry doesn't end with the introduction. Without those beautiful work of poetry by some fabulous poets in the beginning of each chapter, this book would not have been what it is. As a matter of fact, that small poetry builds the context of that chapter well. Also, that draws a good amount of curiosity to find the connection of those four lines of poetry in those few pages of that particular chapter. War takes everything in life. In return, it leaves a lot of remembrances which are quite painful. No war leaves sweet memories. There is always a loss in any war. Many people lose their roots in a war. Three Voices Is A Journey To Unravel The Truth of Past Three voices by Nora Sarel is a journey of a woman to unravel the truth of the past. It is the story of Lena's life and her loneliness. And what happens when one Lena meets another Lena. In fact, it becomes a meeting of a lifetime for both. And thus starts the unfolding of a truth that is hard to face.

    Three Voices portrays the horrifying life and trauma of a woman during the Holocaust and her journey as she tries to put it behind her. The story is told in three parts, bringing together the past, present and future, creating links that the woman was unaware of and exposing some truths that were hidden. The story is brings out the harsh conditions, the way of life and the hardships people faced at the time of the Holocaust.

The story is told in three parts, bringing together the past, present and future, creating links that the woman was unaware of and exposing some truths that were hidden. The story is brings out the harsh conditions, the way of life and the hardships people faced at the time of the Holocaust. In the first part, we take a journey with Lena as she shows us a glimpse into her childhood and years of growing up. A child, forced to grow up and act mature right from the age of 3, Lena deals with hiding, secrecy, living away from her parents and changes in faith. The main question that comes up as a part of this story is the question of faith and religion, how the mind processes it and how it affects people. At times it is difficult to follow the story as it is narrated without a clear distinction in who is really talking to the reader. It becomes confusing to separate the information until later on, in the last part, when the rest of the story unravels. The character profile of the "other Lena" is confusing and not very clear. The story of the priest and the truth he finally brings out ensures that the reader has the entire story by the end of the book. A lot of repetition of points, especially to re-enforce how the protagonist was forced to grow up very soon, diluted the effect and seriousness of the overall theme. Overall, the story is a decent read for those who enjoy stories based on historical events and the reader will definitely feel the sadness and effect of the events as Lena sets out to rediscover and reclaim her past.

He is totally blind with passion and she is totally oblivious. He is consumed by carnal desires and when he grabs her, she resists with all her might. He becomes morose and vengeful. This episode reminded me of the deplorable behaviour of our so-called Hindu saints. Asharam bapu, Dixit of Ishwariya vidyalaya and Ram Rahim came to mind. This is a story of grit and determination. I like the story. 4 /5 stars.

    This is a sad story which shows the impact of war on lives of Poland jews. It is a heart wrenching story of a girl and her childhood spent on moving to different hiding places away from her parents to save herself from German soldiers and other Poles who hate Jews. This story shows how an innocent child can learn life surviving skills when she cannot even have basic needs like food, water, clothes and bath.

    (I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review) Overall, a good, engaging read. The majority of the story follows Lena as she grows up Jewish in Nazi-occupied Poland. The other two "voices" follow two people who impacted Lena's life. The story is magnificently told, with vivid imagery and emotions. I did have to pull myself from the story a few times to look some things up, and I worry that the casual reader will be taken aback by some lesser known Jewish traditions.
