Publisher's Summary

Many know the tragic story of Anne Frank, the teen whose life ended at Auschwitz during the Holocaust. But most people don’t know about Eva Schloss, Anne’s playmate and stepsister. 

Though Eva, like Anne, was taken to Auschwitz at the age of 15, her story did not end there. 

This incredible memoir recounts - without bitterness or hatred - the horrors of war, the love between mother and daughter, and the strength and determination that helped a family overcome danger and tragedy.

Amazing Story! Listen to this audiobook.

I have studies and read so many things about Anne Frank. I never knew this part of the story. Let us never forget the horrors of the recent past. Wonderful narration by Richardson.

Absolutely beautiful

I enjoyed Eva’s Story so much. Such a beautifully written detailed remembrance of a first hand account. The audio reading was very well done, flowed perfectly and put me there as I listened. This is an important piece of history. I am so glad I received this for my unbiased review, it will be on my top list of recommendations!

Eva’s Story

Eva Schloss posthumously became Anne Frank’s stepsister in postwar years, when her mother married Otto Frank. And while that connection may be what draws us in as readers, “Eva’s Story” is very much its own story, quite different from Anne’s.
Anne herself shows up minimally in early chapters, and her diary shows up in the later chapters, but the bulk of the book is about Eva and her mother, as concentration camp prisoners.
The interesting thing about a memoir such as this is that even though it has similarities to other works, instead of seeming like a repeat it feels like a unique, rich, powerful addition to the bigger story of the Holocaust.
I received a free copy of the audiobook version of “Eva’s Story” from the publisher, in exchange for writing this review, and I can say that I am glad to have received it and to have listened to it.

Wonderful, sad, uplifting heartwarming story!

It's hard to know what to say about this story. When Eva is describing her family life, parts of it made me smile. However, when she described the horrors she went through, it made me cry knowing this was more than just a fictional story, but actually happened. The narrator was great, bringing the story to life, and narrating with emotion. Even though, it was horrible, and dreadful, Eva manages to inject some hope and be thankful for the little things that happened. I also thought the interview at the end was a wonderful touch. Will be reading her other book that's available in audio soon. I would highly recommend this book, and I hope people read this and learn something.

Eva's Story: A Survivor's Tale by the Stepsister of Anne Frank
: Eva Schloss, Evelyn Julia Kent

This audiobook is supposed to take up the Holocaust story where Anne Frank's diary ended. The author knew Anne as a child, then after the war her mother married Anne's father. That was something I didn't know. Very detailed descriptions of life during the war.



The narration was well done, by Ann Richardson.

Different Perspective

This is a different perspective from what is usually seen when reading Anne Frank. I think this is a great addition to the story of anne frank. Eva's story is great too but it definitely complements Eva's story.

Beautiful Book

Moving, horrifying, emotional. This book is a must read. Once I started listening to Eva's story, I couldn't stop. The torture that she went through and the losses that she endured are unimaginable. What a strong young woman she was and was forced to be. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review. The opinion is totally my own, it is a wonderful book.

remembering history

those that fail to learn from history are doom to repeat it.
This story is a powerful reminder of the darkness of the human heart and the glimmers of hope that shine through.

Great Read

Eva's Story: A Survivor's Tale by the Step-Sister of Anne Frank was a good read by Eva Schloss and Evelyn Julia Kent. Eva and her family became refugees in 1938. This book followed Eva and her family as they escaped the Nazi's. Eva became Anne Frank's step-sister when her mom married Anne's father. This was a good read.

Great listen

Great book to listen to. We usually know all about her sister story, but sadly the war has many other stories and Eva’s is a great example of it.
