Publisher Description

THE SUNDAY TIMES AND INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER

'A standalone classic . . . An incredible book, remarkable for its unflinching gaze at the past and also for its hope'
GUARDIAN, 'Books to Give You Hope'

'Remarkable . . . Makes it clear just what an achievement it was starting over again, when survivors were not only economically and physically depleted, but emotionally devastated, too'
SCOTSMAN

Eva was arrested by the Nazis on her fifteenth birthday and sent to Auschwitz. Her survival depended on endless strokes of luck, her own determination and the love and protection of her mother Fritzi, who was deported with her.

When Auschwitz was liberated, Eva and Fritzi began the long journey home. They searched desperately for Eva's father and brother, from whom they had been separated. The news came some months later. Tragically, both men had been killed.

Before the war, in Amsterdam, Eva had become friendly with a young girl called Anne Frank. Though their fates were very different, Eva's life was set to be entwined with her friend's for ever more, after her mother Fritzi married Anne's father Otto Frank in 1953.

This is a searingly honest account of how an ordinary person survived the Holocaust. Eva's memories and descriptions are heartbreakingly clear, her account brings the horror as close as it can possibly be.

But this is also an exploration of what happened next, of Eva's struggle to live with herself after the war and to continue the work of her step-father Otto, ensuring that the legacy of Anne Frank is never forgotten.

Congratulations

I’ve read many Holocaust memoirs. Each and everyone of the stories were either similar and/or unique. This story affected me in the same way all the others did. And that is, a profound heartache and sadness that was bought upon all the victims of the Holocaust. May this never happen again.
