S For Story/10599387
A fourteen-year-old schoolgirl is torn from her home and family and thrust into one of history's greatest atrocities, the concentration camp of Auschwitz.

WAYNESVILLE, N.C. - s4story -- About:
In January of 1943, fourteen-year-old Basha Anush and her family were dragged from their home in Pruzhany, Poland by Nazi troops and shipped off to the infamous Auschwitz concentration camp.

Within days, five members of her family would be dead and she would be subjected to two-and-a-half years of abuse, a death march into Germany, and months of roaming with other homeless girls when the Third Reich collapsed.

Despite it all, she honored a last-minute promise given to her mother: she would survive to tell the story. With supreme inner strength and courage, she lived to start a new life in the United States, raise a family, and claim a piece of the American Dream.

The nightmare of the Holocaust never fully left her, but she triumphed in spite of it.

Advanced Praise:
"I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I understand "enjoyed " is a strange thing to say about a book heavy with the stories of human suffering and depravity. I enjoyed the way it was written. Having chapters be rich with Basha's own words, but then followed up with extra facts relating to what the previous chapter was about was perfect. Neither one muddles the other portions importance. Together it would be too messy and really dilute Basha's story. Separate it was beautiful."
