The Girl in the Red Coat Summary


Roma Ligocka has lived muliple lives over the past 50 years - artist, theatrical designer, bohemian nomad, political activist, wife and mother - but she was first a girl from the Krakow ghetto. It was only when she saw the little girl in the red coat in the film of "Schindler's List" that she recognized her own childhood and realised the extent of her failure to come to terms with the anguish of it. This memoir revisits the horror of her early years and reveals how far its effects have reached throughout her life. Leading an apparently successful life, she has nonetheless often been at the mercy of depressions. Now after 50 years, she is able to write about honestly examining the scars of a traumatic childhood and getting past sorrow while still acknowledging the truth of the past.
