Publisher's Summary

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.

Original Material ©1957 Gerda Weissmann Klein; Recording (P)1997 FSG, Penguin U.S.A.

    "Very good"

    It was an amazing story. I am always curious as to what motivates people to survive. What differentiates the leaders from the followers. Gerda makes you feel what was driving her. Such a small person physically can be so large.

    "GREAT LISTEN"

    The story starts off a bit slow, but worth listening to. The ending seemed almost unbelievable. Bless Gerda for sharing her story!

    "Wonderful story, beautifully read"

    The only reason for getting this book was because Barbara Rosenblat was the Narrator. I extremely enjoyed The Nazis officers wife which Rosenblat had also narrated. They way she brings these characters to life makes me feels as though I am right there witnessing what was happening. I can't wait to find my next book that she has done.
