Publisher's Summary

A story of heartbreak and survival by the stepsister of Anne Frank.

Eva was arrested by the Nazis on her 15 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 stepfather, Otto, ensuring that the legacy of Anne Frank is never forgotten.

Fantastic

I wish I had the eloquence to express my opinion of this book in a way that does it more justice than "it was mesmerizing"... but it really was!

A terrific story, I am glad I read it.

Treasure

This book is so enlightening of what happened after Otto Frank and how he carried on after Anne was murdered. In my opinion that is what happened during this dark time. Mass murder. If you love history and especially WWII a must read.
