9780988846869: The Seven Year Dress: A Novel

One of the darkest times in human history was the insane design and execution to rid the world of Jews and “undesirables.” At the hands of the powerful evil madman Adolf Hitler, families were ripped apart and millions were slaughtered. Persecution, torture, devastation, and enduring the unthinkable remained for those who lived. This is the story of one woman who lived to tell her story. This is a narrative of how a young beautiful teenager, Helen Stein, and her family were torn asunder, ultimately bringing her to Auschwitz. It was there she suffered heinous indignity at the hands of the SS. It was also there, in that death camp, she encountered compassion, selfless acts of kindness, and friendship. Written by the award-winning, best-selling author of His Name Was Ben, comes a story of the resilience of the human spirit that will leave you thinking about Helen Stein and The Seven Year Dress for years to come after the last page is shut.

She grew up in West Los Angeles and attended UCLA, where she received a Master’s Degree in Science. While in college, she won awards and was published for her short-story writing. One of these stories, Something Wonderful, was based on the couple presented in His Name Was Ben, which she expanded into a fictionalized novel in 2014.

Semi-retired, she continues to work part-time as a Nurse Practitioner in Ventura County. When she’s not writing, she does pro-bono consultation work with women with cancer, works in the Westminster Free Clinic as a volunteer provider, volunteers as a mediator in the Ventura County Courthouse for small claims cases, and involves herself, along with her husband, in dog rescue. Profits from her books go to help rescue dogs from kill shelters.

Review:

Reviewed By Raanan Geberer for Readers' Favorite Five stars!

The Seven Year Dress by Paulette Mahurin tells of the rise of Nazism inGermany and the concentration camps, as related by aged survivor to a young nursing student who rents a room in herapartment. There have been numerous holocaust memoirs, but most dealwith the Jews of Eastern Europe, while this one focuses on Germanyitself. Through Helen's eyes, we see the progression of anti-Semitismthroughout the 1930s, from harassment of Jewish businesses to theprohibition against Jews working in certain professions, from raciallaws prohibiting marriage or sexual relationships between Jews andnon-Jews to the seizure of radios and firearms from Jews. Like manyolder Jews, Helen's father takes a "wait-and-see" attitude towardNazism, but the young Helen almost immediately sees Nazism for what itis. After the violence of Kristallnacht, a non-Jewish friend secretlyoffers Helen and her brother, Ben, a hiding place in the basement of anold farmhouse, but their troubles have just begun.

Paulette Mahurin's The Seven Year Dress is well written -- as ajournalism graduate, I was pleased to see that she uses shortparagraphs, a minimum of adjectives and adverbs, and so on. It doesn'tshy away from difficult topics, such as Helen's and Ben's separatesexual fantasies while they are hiding in the basement. Perhaps morethan in most such memoirs, you can vividly feel the tragedy of theholocaust; Helen is the only one of four siblings who survives the war.It's also inspirational how Helen still clings to humanity, as witnessed when the non-Jewish friend (who joins the SS, but mainly as a "cover"), brings Helen some of her favorite books that he has salvaged from their family home (all of them American novels, by the way). All in all, Iheartily recommend The Seven Year Dress. And what of the dress itself?You'll have to read the book to find out.  (readersfavorite.com/authors-area)
