"The most important book of the modern age!"
Neal Lavon, Voice of America
"The most historically accurate book ever written of the first transport of women into Auschwitz--the only book ever written by a survivor of that transport, who survived 3 years and 41 days in the camps."
Director of the Museum of Women at Auschwitz
How do you go from being a grandmother to a writer? Well, you need someone with kind eyes to sit across from you so when you tell your story you can see your tears reflected in hers and you know what you went through is not only real, but touching the next generation.
If I have any motto for life after 3 years in Auschwitz it is this: The heart is only so big. So I do not hate. To hate is to let Hitler win.
Please pass it on. Love, Rena
