Book Description

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.

Review

If it is possible to write with stark sensitivity then Eva has managed it, illuminating both the frailty and strength of the human spirit. After 60 years Eva Schloss is finally telling her own story and it deserves to be read. (Daily Express)

5.0 out of 5 stars A very moving and inspiring story 30 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a very moving and inspiring story from a dignified and caring lady who has suffered, purely as a result of racial hatred, more than the vast majority of us will ever know or understand, and yet the message which she carries to the younger generations and to prisoners and to the world in general is one of tolerance, understanding of difference and the need for people live together in peace. I hope her message continues to inspire people around the world for many years to come.

I decided to purchase this book after seeing Eva on the BBC Breakfast news. Eva is Anne Franks stepsister and I read Anne Franks Diary about 20 years ago. This book is beautifully written and details the life of Eva, her mother, father and brother and their lives before the 2nd World War, their capture by the Nazi's and their time spent at Auschwitz, and how mother and daughter survived Auschwitz and had to rebuild their destroyed lives. You can't even imagine the horrors that they witnessed and experienced during this time. I have been unable to put this book down and believe that everybody should read this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars courage 29 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
every once in a while a genre needs a shake up and this book, to me, is that very thing. We learned about the Holocaust in school and were told by parents and grandparents. We were told how brave the people were. We were told how bad the Nazis are. This book answers a question for me. Could she forgive? I know I couldn't. I also think that I would have been a coward. I could never be brave enough to put these experiences on paper. She must have spent hours in tears of mourning for the losses she experienced. The only question I have is: how did the first Seder or Passover go? It puts my priorities in order. Family first.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent read 20 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I would recommend that you read Eva's Story by the same author before this book as it describes her time in Auschwitch in much more detail. That being said, I really enjoyed this well written, touching story. The message that is presented is one that the world should not forget.

5.0 out of 5 stars A moving account 11 May 2013
Format:Hardcover
Today, 11th May, is Eva Schloss's birthday. It is also the anniversary of her 15th birthday, and the day she and her family were captured by the Gestapo after hiding in Amsterdam and their whereabouts being discovered. I read this chapter just yesterday and this fact that the date almost exactly coincided, and perhaps also after having briefly met the author at the book launch of this very book in Daunts Marylebone just a short while ago, connected with me and moved me deeply.
I would recommend this book as it is a very well written account of someone who has lived through such appalling circumstances, and for the author being very honest and open about what it has been like to survive.
