    One Reply to “The Secret Holocaust Diaries: The Untold Story of Nonna Bannister”

    1. I think a lot of people are too critical of this book. Please understand before reading it that this is NOT going to be similar it the diary of Anne Frank because Nonna is not Jewish and is not being pursued and persecuted because of her faith. This is the diary of a privileged young Russian girl whose family survives the Russian Revolution, endures Stalin's rule, German's invasion and occupation of Russia and the Holocaust. As a Russian, Nonna is not subjected to the concentration camps but rat [...]

    2. I finished reading “The Secret Holocaust Diaries” by Nonna Bannister today. It was not what I had expected it to be but I was pleasantly surprised.I had expected it to be similar to “The Diary of a Young Girl” by Anne Frank but it wasn’t, and for very good reasons. Anne Frank was a young Jewish girl who was hiding from the German Nazi’s to avoid being sent to concentration camps and, ultimately, her death. Nonna Bannister was a young privileged Russian girl who is caught up in the Ge [...]

    3. The title is a misnomer: very little of this book is diary entries. Almost all of it is memoirs written by Nonna Bannister decades after World War II, along with poems she wrote in her youth. Historical notes attempt to add context to Bannister's disjointed and at times confusing narrative.I didn't find this book to be all that interesting. Bannister writes in great detail about her happy childhood in a wealthy, educated Russian/Polish family, but practically skims over her experiences as a slav [...]

    4. I hate to give this book less than 4 stars because I really think people should read it. The story of Nonna's life is worth hearing. I am glad that I read the book and hope others will as well. There is much to learn from history, and I definitely learned some history (particularly about Russia) which I did not know. Having said that, I have to also agree with a number of other reviewers that the editing of the book could have been better. Some of the insertions seem to simply repeat much of wha [...]

    5. I found this hard to follow. Nonna Bannister was born into a relatively wealthy Russian family. Several of her family members were killed during the German WW2 occupation and Nonna and her mother decide therefore to flee to Nazi Germany (presumably not knowing what was going on there.) They end up working in a labour camp alongside Jews and Poles. They witness the serious atrocities at the hands of the Nazis. At the end of WW2, Nonna is the sole survivor of her family and she moves to America wh [...]

    6. Tea with Nonna: I bought The Secret Holocaust Diaries a few weeks ago and started reading it. What an amazing book! Nonna Bannister was a gifted young Russian girl from a loving, warm, and wealthy family. Caught up in the horror of World War II, she watched everything and everyone she knew and loved disintegrate before her eyes. Yet Nonna miraculously survived, with her faith intact and her secret diaries hidden away, known only to her until recently. What is most astonishing to me was Nonna's l [...]

    7. I think the best way to appreciate this book is to go into it knowing that the title is misleading. For the most part this is not really diaries. It's a story she reconstructed much later in her life from some diary entries, filled in with her memories of the events and reflection on them many years later. If you think your friends will never get around to reading the books you've suggested to them, be patient. My Goo Dreads friend Chris recommended this book to me in April of 2011. I read it in [...]

    8. FREE EBOOK ON KINDLE. Non-fiction holocaust memior. Currently down from the regular price of 12.99. Get it HERE. Probably won't be free for long.

    9. NO SPOILERS!!!This book recounts the life of Nonna Lisowskaja Bannister. It is another biography based on a woman living through the holocaust. However, Nonna is not Jewish. She was raised according to the practises of the Russian Orthodox Church. Her grandfather was a Cossack and although he dies rather early on in the story, her grandmother plays a central role in the early years of Nonna's life. There are two central themes, the wonderful memories of her young childhood spent with her family [...]

    10. I see from all the reviews people loved this book. I am not one. I did not dislike it but it seems to me people just loved it because it is the politically correct view to say anything about the Holocaust is a great book. I am Jewish. I read everything I can get my hands on concerning the subject, but that is exactly what I did not like about this book, it is NOT about the Holocaust except in one or two very minor "chapters". The Holocaust was about the incarceration and murder of millions of pe [...]

    11. The only reason why I am giving this book four stars is because the Kindle edition, at least, lacks the photos that are constantly mentioned. I'm not sure if the photos were included in the print edition of the book nor am I sure why the Kindle edition couldn't use them because of the material that does appear in the appendix. But honestly, if you keep mentioning photos in the notes, you should include the photos.Nonna Bannister was a Russian, who may or may not have been of Jewish heritage. She [...]

    12. I hate to say this about a book with a historical significance like this one, but I found it utterly boring. I honestly don't think it was the author Nonna's fault, as it seemed like most the material given would have made a good story. Rather it was all the tedious, unnecessary inserts, and the odd way it was put together. I would have liked to see things from the beginning of her childhood toward the end, instead of jumping from event to event whenever the editor saw fit. It also felt like a l [...]

    13. Many people may not be aware that non-Jews were Holocaust victims, such as Nonna Bannister, a Russian girl who was imprisoned in German labor camps with her mother, who later was transferred to a concentration camp where she was burned to death in an oven. Her father was brutally killed by Nazi soldiers in Russia. What's amazing about Nonna is that she kept a diary from the time she was nine years old and still in Russia, hidden under her clothes and tied around her waist in a small pillow, even [...]

    14. So certainly feels like one can't critique a diary of a young girl during WWII; and yet, this book was really quite terrible. I blame the editors. There was so much repetition (and yet so much still missing). We hear several stories twice; the editors feel the need to insert footnotes within the text (rather than the more standard bottom of the page or end of the book); and these footnotes very rarely add anythingey most often just paraphrase what Nonna has already said. I understand that they t [...]

    15. I often times hesitate to review non-fiction books because they take me a lot longer to read than fiction books do, they just tend to slow down the rapid rate at which I zip through books. Until now. This may be one of the best non-fiction books I have ever read.This is the gripping true story of Nonna Bannister and her survival of the Holocaust during WWII as a Russian (though there are strong suspicions that her father had Jewish blood). Her family lost everything and she and her mom ended up [...]

    16. I jumped on this book when it was offered because it's very possible that my ancestors suffered similar atrocities. My maternal grandmother's side of the family is Carpatho-Rusyn from an area that is now Slovakia. I am uncertain of the origin of my maternal grandfather's family - he always said Russian but I've been unable to find immigration records to verify the information. While my immediate family didn't suffer, they came to America soon after the turn of the 20th century, it's possible tha [...]

    17. My most favorite snippet from this book: Ode of Memories Be still my heart.The thought is generousOf those who are near you.Why trouble those who care and love?The past is gone and what is aheadIs still to be felt.The sun is bright,The skies are blue,It is no longer you who murmurs.So, why do we feel pain?Perhaps of someone who is near us.But forgiveness is only an act.Of much generosity and wisdom.

    18. I was reluctant to read this book because I didnt' want to be sad, but I really liked the way the she emphasized the good amidst the horror. It was very uplifting to know that this woman lived a good, positive life in spite of all the horror that happened to her because of the strong faith shown her by her grandmother and the positive attitude of her parents.

    19. Upon first glimpse of the synopsis of The Secret Holocaust Diaries one is reminded of Anne Frank: Diary of a Young Girl. While there are some similarity between the two there also are vast differences. The first being that Nonna Bannister was a Russian Christian and Anne Franks was a Jew. The second is that Bannister lived to write and revise her story while Frank did not.The Secret Holocaust Diaries is a tale of how a young girl survives not only World War II but also the early years of Communi [...]

    20. Nonna Bannister left behind the horrors of her European childhood when she relocated to the United States alone. Having lost all of her family, including her brother Anatoly with whom she was quite close to the Nazi regime, Nonna closed the door on her life in Europe and started afresh in the United States. Throughout her marriage, the birth of her children, and her latter years, she did not speak of the immense cruelty she suffered at the hands of the Germans, however one day, she opened her se [...]

    21. Nonna Lisowskaya, a refugee from Soviet Russia, arrived in the US in the 1950's and quickly married. Many years later she showed her husband the diaries and notes she'd kept as a young girl in Russia. Nonna's family was a privileged one, but even they couldn't escape unscathed as WWII escalates. First the Soviets come looting the countryside, and then Hitler's forces arrive to take what little food and fuel is left. Having given up the *opportunity* to evacuate with the retreating Russian forces [...]

    22. Reviews are not my forte. I don't do them justice. And this book deserves a good one.As with any child's account of the Holocaust, this harrowing story tugged at my heart strings like no other.

    23. This non-fiction book reminded me of The Diaries of Anne Frank. Nonna was the daughter of a wealthy Russian family. She began keeping a diary at the age of 9. This diary covers her early life and her mother's extended family after the Russian Revolution through the loss of all of her family during World War II. After the war, Nonna emigrated to the US, married and raised a family. During that period she hid all her writings, photographs and stories (written in 6 different languages as Nonna was [...]

    24. Browsing through my Nook and Kindle books, I came across this one on my Nook, and I decided to have a look at it. After reading barely 40 pages, I was so sad that I had to stop for awhile, but I knew that if I didn't read this one, in one sitting, I might never return to it because of the extreme emotions it aroused in me.First, I know that there are many who say people were just not aware of what was happening in Europe during the war. Second, there are many who say that it wasn't only the Jews [...]

    25. GoodInteresting, read this within a twelve hours. The poems Nonna wrote were beautiful.So cool that she knew around four languages

    26. Born into wealth and privileged in present-day Ukraine, Nonna Bannister is persecuted by the Soviets for being wealthy and, later, by the Nazis for being Russian. Nonna keeps a diary throughout her childhood carrying the tiny scraps of paper through the horrors of the Nazi concentration camps and then to her new life in the United States in a small pouch.This book, however, is not a reprint of her diary but rather a memoir rewritten on yellow, legal pads decades after the war and long after Nonn [...]

    27. If you write a book about the holocaust, it is almost certainly going to get good reviews. There are very atrocious things that are presented in this book and I cannot imagine the pain this generation went through, but that does not make a good book, even if it is a first hand account. First, the editor's fall over themselves trying to explain Nonna's very odd anachronisms. At one point, she says she visited a certain Councilman in Germany after WWII, but she happens to use the name of the then [...]

    28. “Most of the young people were being watched, and the children in school were being taught that there is no God.” – Page 46Nonna Bannister was born to wealthy parents in the Ukraine during Stalin’s Soviet Union. She kept her diaries sewn into the hems of her clothing and in a pillow her grandmother gave to her (Nonna was later buried with it in America). She was a holocaust survivor saved only by the mercy of God.This book is a collection of stories compiled by her husband and children. [...]

    29. This is an amazing story of the courage and faith of a thirteen year old girl living through horrific times. In the first part Nonna talks how she enjoyed her family and what it was like being a kid back then. Her family had many grain mills and was pretty well offuntil the war hit and the government took over every single one of their mills. The government allowed them the big family house which they stayed in when the government strongly suggested they evacuate. They stayed to protect what lit [...]
