In Marsha Cook's most informative book, Sala - More Than a Survivor, you'll discover undeniable truth amongst the Holocaust that words alone cannot fully express. Based on a true story, Marsha discloses one event after another in a sensitive yet profound manner that joins your heart with Sala's during her most unforgettable journey.

The story unfolds during World War II ending in 1945, when a tenacious ten year old girl named Sala experiences the sudden loss of her parents and siblings, one by one, abruptly taken by Nazi's. She was strong-willed and hopeful through her most trying circumstances but with sheer determination and perseverance, Sala was reunited with her sister but not before suffering tremendous outcries unknown to most of us while fighting for her very life.

After reading the heartbreaking series of events Sala lived through, she has taught me surviving is useless without a purpose. Love and commitment were the glue that held every piece of Sala's shattered life together until the necessary healing and forgiveness were found. Treading this journey with Sala through vivid and blunt accounts retold by Marsha, a deeper thankfulness for life itself has been birthed within me. Upon realizing the extreme pain, utter humiliation and intense rejection experienced by those who have survived the Holocaust, I too have hope in any situation that God is with me and sees the bigger picture I have yet to envision.

This book will touch your heart, move your spirit as the unforgettable truth of the Holocaust is shared from a most respectable survivor herself, Salucia Lewis. Upon closing Sala's final pages, you will never be the same.

Format: Paperback
Sala Lewis is a well known model and singer, she's also a survivor of Bergen Belsen concentration camp. Sala was a young girl when Jewish people started to disappear. Several members of her family were taken before she was, then one day while she was out playing with friends, her parents and brothers were taken. By the blessing of God and her own spunk, she was fortunate enough to be reunited with her sister, Dora, in one of the camps.

Some would argue that it was good luck, others that it was God's blessings, but she and her sister Dora as well as their brothers, survived and were able eventually to move to Canada and America where she made a name for herself.
Her story is told in the wonderful biography, "Sala, More than a Survivor" written by Marsha Casper Cook, as told by Sala Lewis.

We follow Sala from the time she is a child until her adulthood as a wife and mother. Through it all, her indomitable spirit kept her going. The love and support of her older sister, Dora, certainly saw her through hard times.
One can only imagine how horrible the camps were in Nazi Germany. Sala clearly tells how hard life was for them, but somehow, they lived. Sala now lectures, telling others about the horrors of Nazi Germany, emphasizing how loving one another is the key to preventing such a thing from happening again.

"Sala, More Than a Survivor" is a beautiful, candid look at one woman's life and what she made of it after the Holocaust. She had dreams of becoming famous and she lived to fulfill that dream.

My favorite part of the book, which brought tears to my eyes, was at the end. She was asked to speak at her son's school, telling the children about living in Bergen Belsen.

Format: Paperback
"Sala" is different from most available survivor stories for two reasons. First, its subject was only ten years old when she was taken away. Most accounts we have deal with older survivors, whereas Sala basically grows up in a concentration camp and is one of the few children that age to survive, adding a new perspective. Secondly, this book doesn't end with her liberation from the Nazis, but chronicles Sala living a full life despite a past that would make many give up. True stories like this are invaluable to our history, and Marsha Cook writes it eloquently.
