At age eleven, Bronia and her siblings are taken to Auschwitz, where her family is broken up once again. She manages to survive by sticking with her sister and befriending a woman named Bozenka, who becomes a surrogate mother to the girls. Through a combination of luck and circumstance, Bronia makes it through the horrors of the concentration camp, several near-fatal illnesses, and the loss of her family.
This memoir, a straightforward presentation of some of the most horrifying events in human history, is both a heartbreaking and inspiring addition to any library.
