Gudao, Lone Islet Review

Ester Shifren (née Benjamin)

I don’t remember that particular one, but there were many, and I have covered the subject quite broadly in my book. I suffered intensely from the racist cruelty of some of the children and was extremely lonely much of the time. Thank you for your lovely description of me …

I think what happens to us in childhood leaves indelible marks that we carry for the rest of our lives. I am sure it helps us a lot to share memories of our own unique experience because it was so “foreign”.
