A Spoonful of Soup and Other Stories, Gary Gray

Gary Gray (Gustav Josef Crajcar) was born in Sosnowiec, Poland. In April 1942, aged thirteen, he was incarcerated for three years in a number of slave-labour concentration camps. During this time, he discovered that his parents and younger sister had died in Auschwitz in 1943.  In 1958 in a remarkable sequence of events, two aunts living in Melbourne tracked him down and a year later he came to join them.

In 1986, Gary Gray began recording his war experiences as a legacy for his three daughters, in the form of short stories. These have consequently gained wide acclaim, having been published in various anthologies, magazines and newspapers.  Now one book brings together all his stories, allowing the reader to make that terrible and unforgettable journey with the author.   An inspiring collection.
