Summary"Eve was arrested by the Nazis on her fifteenth birthday and sent to Auschwitz. Her survival depended on endless tiny strokes of luck, her own determination and the love and protection of her mother Fritzi, who was deported with her. When Auschwitz was liberated, Eva and Fritzi searched desperately for Eva's father and brother, from whom they had been separated. The news came some months later. Tragically, both men had been killed. Before the war, in Amsterdam, Eva had become friendly with a young girl called Anne Frank. Though their fates were very different, Eva's life was set to be entwined with her friend's for ever more, after her mother Fritzi married Anne's father Otto Frank in 1953. This is a searingly honest account of how an ordinary person survived the Holocaust... But this is also an exploration of what happened next, of Eva's struggle to live with herself after the war and to continue the work of her stepfather Otto, ensuring that the legacy of Anne Frank is never forgotten."
