    Booklist, starred review
  • A striking memoir from an unspeakably terrifying era. Married hastily to a young man who was able to help her family survive by his canny trading instincts - until he was caught and disappeared - Franci was herded into the cattle cars for transport to Auschwitz in May 1944. From then on, Franci demonstrates a fierce determination to adapt and prevail amid the harshest conditions

  • Rarely does a Holocaust survivor have such penetrating insight . This is a most remarkable memoir, told without self-pity, but with deep psychological astuteness about herself and the people she encountered. I didn't want it to end

    Eva Fogelman, Pulitzer-Prize nominated author
