A classic of Holocaust literature, Gerda Weissmann Klein's memoir tells the moving story of a young woman's experience as a slave laborer for the Nazis and her miraculous liberation. Gerda was 18 years old when she was taken from her home in Poland and imprisoned for 3 years in a series of German work camps. Meanwhile, her parents died in the ovens of Auschwitz and her brother perished in the interior of Poland. Gerda now lives in Arizona with her husband, Kurt Klein, who helped liberate Gerda from Volary, Czechoslovakia, on May 7, 1945. This moving memoir was the inspiration for the Academy Award-winning documentary One Survivor Remembers. Download and start listening now!

    " Excellent book but emotionally exhausting to read. Makes you incredibly grateful for what you have yet depressed over the evil that happens in this world. "

    " I first read this book for my 9th grade English class, but have re-read it once a year since. Written by Gerda Klein, she gives you her first hand account of the Holocaust. Very moving and powerful. "

    " The author survived the holocost as a young woman, and wrote her painful memoires in a way that really takes you into her life and times. This book will break and warm your heart by the last page. "

    " Several years ago I heard the author of this book speak at a conference at BYU. I remember leaving her presentation filled with true admiration and awe for this remarkable woman. This book is a memoir of her childhood and its abrupt end with the invasion of the Nazis in Poland. It follows her years living in concentration camps and culminating with a horrific death march across Germany where she is eventually rescued by an American soldier who will come to play a very significant role in her life. In the tradition of Carrie Ten Boom, what could be a bitter, horrible story is actually a story of love, forgiveness, and dignity. It is a life-changing book! "
