Summary"When the Nazis invaded Hungary on March 19, 1944, elementary school teacher Helena Jockel thought only about how to save 'her' children as she accompanied them all the way to Auschwitz. Her account of living and surviving in the camp is clear-eyed and poignant, sometimes recording the too-brief moments of beauty and kindness that accompany the unremitting cruelty." —Publisher
