Two Who Survived chronicles the true story of two children from different worlds: a city boy and a country girl. When the persecution of Jews begins, both are plucked from their reality and thrust into concentration camps. They are stripped of everything they know and forced to navigate a truly incomprehensible, volatile, dangerous and unpredictable world. Even when separated from support systems and family members, their drive to survive helps them cope. Despite their exposure to the horrors of the holocaust, they endure and carry on with a determination that shapes their character forever. Follow the lives of Rose and Max as they learn to adapt to a reality beyond belief and emerge stronger than ever, When they are finally liberated from their concentration camps, they navigate a new world individually before eventually coming together to form what each so tragically lost, a family.
This book is very inspiring, we can learn a lot of lessons from reading Rose and Max's story of survival in the concentration camps. Very sad yet also very encouraging, at the same time! I won't say too much though, please have a read of it for yourselves.
