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.
