Ariela Palaczabout this book: I Love You My Child, I'm Abandoning You is an exciting, human documentary taking place in France during the Holocaust. Ariela's story plucks at existential strings and focuses a spotlight on our strong needs and basic rights to belong—to a family, to a tradition, and to the nation.
Ariela Palacz (as Paulette Szenker) shares her life story with the reader, weaving the past and the present together in an authentic and moving journey between France during the Holocaust, and Jerusalem of today.
Little Paulette, an excellent pupil surrounded by a loving family, is forced suddenly to confront the cruel reality of the Holocaust of French Jewry, forcibly separating her from her family and causing her to be abandoned by her father.
Despite the difficult and shocking experience that she copes with as a young girl during the Holocaust she remains optimistic and naïve, with a thirst for life even in her darkest hours.
Ariela's story honors the memory of French Jews who perished in the Holocaust while simultaneously expressing the will to live, the revival, the optimism, and the bravery that characterize those who survived and the future generations of the Jewish people.
