SummarySwept up as a child in the events of Nazi-era Europe, Klüger saw her family's comfortable Vienna existence destroyed. Despite her shattered childhood, Klüger eventually reclaimed her life. A coming-of-age story that delves into the unsentimental observations of childhood, Still Alive rejects easy assumptions about history as Klüger relates how she and her family survived the Holocaust.
