The twentieth-anniversary edition of Marion Blumenthal Lazan's acclaimed Holocaust memoir features new material by the author, a reading group guide, a map, and additional photographs. "The writing is direct, devastating, with no rhetoric or exploitation. The truth is in what's said and in what is left out."--ALA Booklist (starred review) Marion Blumenthal Lazan's unforgettable and acclaimed memoir recalls the devastating years that shaped her childhood. Following Hitler's rise to power, the Blumenthal family--father, mother, Marion, and her brother, Albert--were trapped in Nazi Germany. They managed eventually to get to Holland, but soon thereafter it was occupied by the Nazis. For the next six and a half years the Blumenthals were forced to live in refugee, transit, and prison camps, including Westerbork in Holland and Bergen-Belsen in Germany, before finally making it to the United States. Their story is one of horror and hardship, but it is also a story of courage, hope, and the will to survive. Four Perfect Pebbles features forty archival photographs, including several new to this edition, an epilogue, a bibliography, a map, a reading group guide, an index, and a new afterword by the author. First published in 1996, the book was an ALA Notable Book, an ALA Quick Pick for Reluctant Readers, and IRA Young Adults' Choice, and a Notable Trade Book in the Field of Social Studies, and the recipient of many other honors. "A harrowing and often moving account."--School Library Journal… (mer)

My favorite books are the ones with true facts and history involved. One of these books is one of them. Part of the Holocaust, the stories that weren't told... This story is about Marion Blumenthal Lazan's unforgettable childhood. Her and her entire family were stuck in Nazi Germany while Adolf Hitler was still in power. For the continuing of the war, their family had o live in refugee/concentration camps. This book discusses how they survived during those hard times. After that the were able to migrate to the United States...this story is truly an amazing story showing courage and hope.

As a student of history, I have read a number of Holocaust stories (and am currently reading Night), and each one drives home the sad fact that people can be unspeakably cruel, and that this cruelness is so often off set by the incredible kindness of another. This dichotomy very much troubles me, and yet fills me with hope, because when I look at the balance I believe there are more people who are good, or are victims, or are silent than those who are evil. So the numbers seem to favor those who are not evil. Yet, the phenomenal amount of death and destruction and misery that is caused by the few that are evil is overwhelming. What bothers me as I read these stories is not so much the evil ones; I knew they existed during the Holocaust, and I know they exist now. What bothers me is the silent ones - an overwhelming number who could easily crush the evil ones, but who choose to remain silent. As the great parliamentarian Edmund Burke said, "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." In every generation this lesson needs to be learned again.

To Joan Newman, to whom I am deeply grateful for the privilege of having met Marion Blumenthal Lazan  -L.P.
To my mother, Ruth Blumenthal Meyberg, who carried the full burden and whose love and perseverance saw us through, and to my husband, Nathaniel, whose deep devotion has made the perpetuation of our heritage possible. And in memory of my father, Walter Blumenthal, who would have derived great joy and fulfillment from his three grandchildren - David, Susan, and Michael - and five great-grandchildren - Arielle, Joshua, Gavriel, Dahlia, and Yoav. To all those who have known adversity and despair, I offer my belief that out of darkness can come light.  -M.B.L.
