Inge Auerbacher's childhood was as happy and peaceful as that of any other German child--until 1942. By then, the Nazis were in power, and because Inge's family was Jewish, she and her parents with sent to a concentration camp in Czechoslovakia. The Auerbachers defied death for three years, and were finally freed in 1945. In her own words, Inge Auerbacher tells her family's harrowing story--and how they carried with them ever after the strength and courage of will that allowed them to survive.
"A moving story . . . The author's] perspective, while chilling, pierces the heart with memorable imagery." --Publishers Weekly
