5.0 out of 5 stars a moving book 23 Mar 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I've read eva's story and I was moved to tears on more than one occasion during the reading of it. I was frightened with her and when she described her first senses of liberation I felt elated with her yet scared at the same time. I'm 17 roughly about the same age as she was back then and I find it terrible to think about what teenagers went through during the holocaust, It is a moving book which I think everyone who is stdying the holocaust should read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally awe inspiring 29 Nov 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
When i picked up this book i was totally unprepared for the mindblowing accounts she maks of her life at Aushwitz. You can feel nothing but admiration to see and feel her bravery and determination to survive. her descriptions really opened my eyes to the atrocites suffered by so many, a book which MUST be read - she deserves it.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best|! 12 Feb 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I first found out about this book when my year six teacher was reading it to us in our English lesons. When she had finished reading us this moving story, she told us that she knew Eva and that Eva was coming to meet us to answer our questions! Everyone was so excited because we where all moved by her story. We met her and asked her questions about what was it like not being able to eat a full meal after coming out of the camp. She was one of the nicest woman we met and where really excited when we found out she would be joining us on our year six trip to Holland! We went on a trip to the Anne Frank house and we all felt her pain when we found her Father's name in the book of names of the people that had been killed in the camps. Parts of the story that me and my fellow classmates loved in the story was how her mother had to be marched away but fell pretending to die of exaustion. The guards did not shoot her and she managed to get back to Eva, who was only 14 at the time! I know this review did not tell you much about the book, but hopefully it has told you a tiny bit about the fabulous woman who wrote this sad but triumphant in the end book. I know that many people won't get the chance to meet her, but this book, get's you as close as you need to go! It's one of the best!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and Inspiring 31 Mar 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
A friend who was emigrating to Canada gave me this book years ago and I've read it so many times. I find it inspiring and an easy (but sometimes harrowing) read! There is strength to be found in even the most dire situations! I preferred this book to Anne Franks Diary. Another book I've read is The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom - and both are in the same league as each other!

I would highly recommend this book as it shows the evil of man's heart but also the strength of will to survive this evil.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful follow up to The Diary of Anne Frank 21 July 1999
By A Customer
I went searching high and low for this book and finally found it in London. The expedition was well worth it. I had read The Diary of Anne Frank about 2 years before this book. It was great to read a first hand experience of the concentration camps after reading Anne's experiences in the annex. Anyone into the Holocaust or even just Anne's diary should read this book. It was very touching and made me understand WWII even better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really moving 8 Feb 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is, possibly, more moving than Anne Frank's diary. It describes the conditions in concentration camps vividly, and makes it stick in your mind. The author seems brave, and has an undeniable faith in God. It makes non-Jews like myself (i'm christian) feel awful about the way the jews were treated, often betrayed by the people they thought were friends. If you have never really thought about the holocaust as something that could affect you, read this book. It makes you realise that if this ever happens again, it will happen to you. I cried while reading this book. Read it.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing Story of Survival 31 Mar 1999
By A Customer
This true story is writen by Anne Frank's surviving step sister. It is an amazing acount of the torture the famished jews went through in consentration camps and during the world war against the nazis all together. She was a brave young girl of 15 when she went through these hard times. A book of drama and full of fear. you would never believe what it was like to be there and to know you might be one of the next to be hung or gassed in the "bad" showers. This portrays a strong will to survive.

If you are familiar with the story of Anne Frank, this has many parallel connections.

Anne Frank was born into a German-Jewish family and Eva into an Austrian-Jewish one and their families had quite separately chosen Amsterdam as a safe refuge from a regime which was about to wreak havoc across Europe. They were of similar age, of broadly similar backgrounds and both girls' fathers had been in business in their respective countries and they also knew each other as they had both lived on the same street, Merwedeplein. They may have attended the same school.

In the early-mid 1930s, there was a sizable pre-existing Jewish population within the Low Countries and they would soon be joined by some of those then able to buy exit visas. Few would then have considered the possibility that Hitler's territorial demands would cover most of Europe.

Within Germany, the Nazis initially advocated the closing and destruction of smaller Jewish-owned businesses, but many of the larger ones and especially those directly or indirectly of benefit to the State (food, clothing and other production businesses, including the supposedly part-Jewish owned Krups works) were placed in State ownership. Many professionals in medicine, law, education and other fields were prohibited from practising and several chose to relocate to 'safer' countries.

In the initial years following Hitler's rise to power, many from Europe's Jewish populations were concerned about their welfare. Some of Germany's wealthier Jewish families were able to purchase exit permits long before national borders were finally closed in 1939.

4.0 out of 5 stars I preferred her later book "After Auschwitz"
Maybe I should have read this first, but I found it a bit less unputdownable than "After Auschwitz". Nevertheless, it is an honest and heartrending history.
