As long as there is life, there is hope
After Mama is taken away by the Nazis, Riva and her younger
brothers cling to their mothere''s brave words to help them endure
life in the Lodz ghetto. Then the family is rounded up, deported to
Auschwitz, and separated. Now Riva is alone.
At Auschwitz, and later in the work camps at Mittlesteine and
Grafenort, Riva vows to live, and to hope - for Mama, for her
brothers, for the millions of other victims of the nightmare of the
Holocaust. And through determination and courage, and unexpected
small acts of kindness, she does live - to write the unforgettable
memoir that is a testament to the strength of the human spirit.
From Our Editors
From the German invasion of Poland in 1939 to the liberation of her concentration camp in 1945, the author chronicles an adolescence shaped by the horrors of the Holocaust but strengthened by the force of her own will.
