Abstract:

Olga Lengyel tells, frankly and without compromise, one of the most horrifying stories of all time. This true, documented chronicle is the intimate, day-to-day record of a woman who survived the nightmare of Auschwitz and Birkenau. It was a shocking experience, it is a shocking book. In a letter to Lengyel, Albert Einstein said, "You have done a real service by letting the ones who are now silent and most forgotten speak." Of the book, actress Mira Sorvino said, " ... The amazing story of a woman who survived the Nazi concentration camps. It's unbelievable yet horrifying because it's true."
