Summary"Inge Auerbacher's childhood was as happy and peaceful as any other German child's—until 1942. By then, the Nazis were in power, and because Inge's family was Jewish, she and her parents were sent to a concentration camp in Czechoslovakia. The Auerbachers defied death for three years, and were finally freed in 1945. In her own words, Inge Auerbacher tells her family's harrowing story—and how they carried with them ever after the strength and courage of will that allowed them to survive." —Publisher description from reissue edition
