Overview

A testament to the enduring strength of the human spirit, family, and, above all, hope, this “vivid memoir of a woman who lost her youth and family to the Nazis” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review) is a Holocaust survival story that will be remembered for generations.

As long as there is life, there is hope…

After Riva’s mother was taken away by the Nazis, Riva and her younger brothers were left to cling to their mother’s brave words to help them endure life in the Lodz ghetto. Then the family is rounded up, deported to Auschwitz, and separated. Now Riva is alone.

At Auschwitz, and later in the work camps at Mittlesteine and Grafenort, Riva vows to live, and to hope—for Mama, for her brothers, for the millions of other victims of the nightmare of the Holocaust. And through determination and courage, and unexpected small acts of kindness, she does live. And this unforgettable memoir of love, strength, and survival is her story.

I've read this book about about 6 times since I was in Middle School, and 10 years later it STILL makes me cry. This is one of the best stories of strength I have ever read.

Unbeliviably emotional, it is such a well told perspective and is sad and happy at times. It really teaches us how much we take for granted. After reading this I wanted to go home and hug my cats because they are like family to me and couldn't bear to lose them.

An excellent read that is not too graphic for older children or teens, yet still tells the hardships and evil innocent people faced. I have read many books on this subject and my favorite is still: I Have Lived a Thousand Lives.
