Abstract:

Memoir of a Hungarian woman who was imprisoned for several years in the German concentration camp Auschwitz. 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."
