"Klara Wizel is full of life at sixteen years old. But a horrific chain of events puts her in one of the most terrifying places imaginable: Auschwitz-Birkenau. There she comes face to face with one of history's most infamous Nazi doctors, nicknamed the Angel of Death, Josef Mengele. With her parents and two of her siblings already killed in the gas chambers, Klara and her two remaining sisters struggle to survive in the women's barracks until Mengele sentences Klara herself to die. But as she waits in the holding room of the chambers, she manages to orchestrate a remarkable death-defying escape. Already the subject of an award-winning documentary, Auschwitz Esacpe: The Klara Wizel Story is based on dozens of personal interviews, and it recounts the inspirational tale of a girl who escapes imminent death at the hands of one of the world's most notorious war criminals."--Back cover.

A New York Times bestseller “Both moving and memorable, combining the emotional resolve of a memoir with the rhythm of a novel.” —New York Times Book Review In 1945, in a now-famous piece of World War II archival footage, four-year-old Michael Bornstein was filmed by Soviet soldiers as he was carried out of Auschwitz in his grandmother’s arms. Survivors Club tells the unforgettable story of how a father’s courageous wit, a mother’s fierce love, and one perfectly timed illness saved his life, and how others in his family from Zarki, Poland, dodged death at the hands of the Nazis time and again with incredible deftness. Working from his own recollections as well as extensive interviews with relatives and survivors who knew the family, Michael relates his inspirational Holocaust survival story with the help of his daughter, Debbie Bornstein Holinstat. Shocking, heartbreaking, and ultimately uplifting, this narrative nonfiction offers an indelible depiction of what happened to one Polish village in the wake of the German invasion in 1939. This thoroughly-researched and documented book can be worked into multiple aspects of the common core curriculum.

For many a trip to the dreaded death camps created by the Nazi's in World War II was a death sentence. Many wouldn't live for long after disembarking their train. Others were sentenced to hard labor that would eventually claim them or drive them to take drastic measures and attempt to escape. Most would be brought back, dead or soon to be dead. There are some stories that stand out from the rest. Men who dared to defy one of the most brutal forces in history, the Nazi regime. These men weighted the odds and were determined to do what few managed to do, escape. First we have the story of two men, whose motivation was not only to escape in order to ensure their own survival but the survival of others as well. They were determined to make it out and warn those that might be next for the camps. Would they make it out? Would anyone listen to what they had to say? Read more and find out. The next story is that of not one or two men finding their way out of a camp, but an all-out revolt. After a shocking note lets them know that they are slated for extermination, desperate men resort to desperate measures to try and survive. Can the son of a Rabbi and a former Soviet music major rally enough men to entertain certain death? Will they succeed and at what cost? Learn more about their story and find out if they made it to freedom. There is no doubt that the holocaust was one of the most shameful events in human history. There were triumphs though. Find out what became of these men who were desperate for survival. Comments From Other Readers "Sometimes it is easy to forget the brutality of the Nazis during World War II. The struggle that the Jews went through has been cast in shadow as we move on in time. The camps were a very real thing though. Very few found a way to escape the horror of these concentration camps. This book will help to enlighten the readers about what lengths men will go to in order to save themselves and the lives of others. Excellent story." - Phillip (Washington, United Sates) "This book is based on the true stories of those who were sent to death camps. They could be considered the fortunate few that were allowed to live. The story of those prisoners in Auschwitz who saw the atrocities there day after day saw trainloads of people brought in. It was the rumor that hundreds of thousands of other Jews were to be sent there to die immediately upon arrival that spurred a plan to escape and tell the world what was truly happening. This is a difficult book to read at times but it's a story that needs to be told! I encourage everyone to get this book today and read it!" - Valerie (Texas, United States)

Abe Peck is the only living Holocaust survivor of an entire town in Poland. He is the only person left in this world who can provide a firsthand account of the atrocities committed by the Nazis against his family, friends and contemporaries. Before Nazi Germany targeted European Jews for persecution and then ultimately annihilation in its insidious plan called the ‘Final Solution of the Jewish Question,’ Abe had a wonderful childhood. But in March 1940, at only fifteen years old, Abe was snatched from his home and family and forced to spend the next five unimaginably horrific years as a prisoner in Nazi internment camps. Robbed of his teenage years, with no parents to guide or care for him, Abe somehow survived starvation, disease, beatings, shootings, forced labor, death marches and prolonged imprisonment. If you ask him how he did it—how he defied death by beating the most abysmal of odds—he will simply tell you that he was lucky: But was it luck, or was it an indomitable will to live? Whatever the reason, we, as a society, are extremely fortunate that a man like Abe Peck survived to tell his story of growing up in an increasingly sinister society fraught with hatred, ignorance, and intolerance. We almost lost Abe because evil was allowed to flourish unchecked. It is Abe’s hope that by experiencing the horrors of discrimination and genocide firsthand, through his eyes, next generations will learn from the past and say, “Never again.”

Inspired by a true story, My Mother’s Secret is a captivating and ultimately uplifting tale intertwining the lives of two Jewish families in hiding from the Nazis, a fleeing German soldier, and the mother and daughter who save them all. Franciszka and her daughter, Helena, are simple, ordinary people...until 1939, when the Nazis invade their homeland. Providing shelter to Jews in Nazi-occupied Poland is a death sentence, but Franciszka and Helena do exactly that. In their tiny home in Sokal, they hide a Jewish family in a loft above their pigsty, a Jewish doctor with his wife and son in a makeshift cellar under the kitchen, and a defecting German soldier in the attic—each party completely unknown to the others. For everyone to survive, Franciszka will have to outsmart her neighbors and the German commander. Told simply and succinctly from four different perspectives—all under one roof—My Mother’s Secret is a testament to the kindness, courage, and generosity of ordinary people who chose to be extraordinary.

"Cipora Hurwitz (Fela Rozensztajn) was less than six years old when the Second World War erupted. All at once the life of her tranquil family became a Hell. The eldest son survived by the skin of his teeth by fleeing to the Soviet Union. The second son was murdered when only sixteen. The parents, by great efforts, succeeded in hiding their little daughter and thereby save (sic) her life -- but they themselves were unable to escape the hands of the murderers. Cipora, as yet a young child and an orphan, was miraculously saved after surviving the Budzyn camps and the Majdanek extermination camp. The author relates the story of her life during the Holocaust to a delegation of Hashomer Hatzair youth and Israeli High School students on a mission to the death camps in Poland. Concurrently, she presents her testimony on what transpired to her family and friends who were exterminated, thus paying tribute to their memory." -- back cover.

"Do you know why I write so much? Because as long as you read, we are together." -- Raizel Garncarz (Sala's sister), April 24, 1941 Few family secrets have the power both to transform lives and to fill in crucial gaps in world history. But then, few families have a mother and a daughter quite like Sala and Ann Kirschner. For nearly fifty years, Sala kept a secret: She had survived five years as a slave in seven different Nazi work camps. Living in America after the war, she kept from her children any hint of her epic, inhuman odyssey. She held on to more than 350 letters, photographs, and a diary without ever mentioning them. Only in 1991, on the eve of heart surgery, did she suddenly present them to Ann and offer to answer any questions her daughter wished to ask. It was a life-changing moment for her scholar, writer, and entrepreneur daughter. We know surprisingly little about the vast network of Nazi labor camps, where imprisoned Jews built railroads and highways, churned out munitions and materiel, and otherwise supported the limitless needs of the Nazi war machine. This book gives us an insider's account: Conditions were brutal. Death rates were high. As the war dragged on and the Nazis retreated, inmates were force-marched across hundreds of miles, or packed into cattle cars for grim journeys from one camp to another. When Sala first reported to a camp in Geppersdorf, Poland, at the age of sixteen, she thought it would be for six weeks. Five years later, she was still at a labor camp and only she and two of her sisters remained alive of an extended family of fifty. In the first years of the conflict, Sala was aided by her close friend Ala Gertner, who would later lead an uprising at Auschwitz and be executed just weeks before the liberation of that camp. Sala was also helped by other key friends. Yet above all, she survived thanks to the slender threads of support expressed in the letters of her friends and family. She kept them at great personal risk, and it is astonishing that she was able to receive as many as she did. With their heartwrenching expressions of longing, love, and hope, they offer a testament to the human spirit, an indomitable impulse even in the face of monstrosity. Sala's Gift is a rare book, a gift from Ann to her mother, and a great gift from both women to the world.

In the tradition of Elie Wiesel’s Night and Primo Levi’s Survival in Auschwitz comes a new memoir by Canadian survivor More than 70 years after the Nazi camps were liberated by the Allies, a new Canadian Holocaust memoir details the rural Hungarian deportations to Auschwitz-Birkenau, back-breaking slave labour in Auschwitz I, the infamous “death march” in January 1945, the painful aftermath of liberation, a journey of physical and psychological healing. Tibor “Max” Eisen was born in Moldava, Czechoslovakia into an Orthodox Jewish family. He had an extended family of sixty members, and he lived in a family compound with his parents, his two younger brothers, his baby sister, his paternal grandparents and his uncle and aunt. In the spring of1944--five and a half years after his region had been annexed to Hungary and the morning after the family’s yearly Passover Seder--gendarmes forcibly removed Eisen and his family from their home. They were brought to a brickyard and eventually loaded onto crowded cattle cars bound for Auschwitz-Birkenau. At fifteen years of age, Eisen survived the selection process and he was inducted into the camp as a slave labourer. One day, Eisen received a terrible blow from an SS guard. Severely injured, he was dumped at the hospital where a Polish political prisoner and physician, Tadeusz Orzeszko, operated on him. Despite his significant injury, Orzeszko saved Eisen from certain death in the gas chambers by giving him a job as a cleaner in the operating room. After his liberation and new trials in Communist Czechoslovakia, Eisen immigrated to Canada in 1949, where he has dedicated the last twenty-two years of his life to educating others about the Holocaust across Canada and around the world. The author will be donating 100% of his royalties for this book to registered charities that promote education and humane causes.

The Nazis murdered their husbands but concentration camp prisoners Priska, Rachel, and Anka would not let evil take their unborn children too—a remarkable true story that will appeal to readers of The Lost and The Nazi Officer’s Wife, Born Survivors celebrates three mothers who defied death to give their children life. Eastern Europe, 1944: Three women believe they are pregnant, but are torn from their husbands before they can be certain. Rachel is sent to Auschwitz, unaware that her husband has been shot. Priska and her husband travel there together, but are immediately separated. Also at Auschwitz, Anka hopes in vain to be reunited with her husband. With the rest of their families gassed, these young wives are determined to hold on to all they have left—their lives, and those of their unborn babies. Having concealed their condition from infamous Nazi doctor Josef Mengele, they are forced to work and almost starved to death, living in daily fear of their pregnancies being detected by the SS. In April 1945, as the Allies close in, Priska gives birth. She and her baby, along with Anka, Rachel, and the remaining inmates, are sent to Mauthausen concentration camp on a hellish seventeen-day train journey. Rachel gives birth on the train, and Anka at the camp gates. All believe they will die, but then a miracle occurs. The gas chamber runs out of Zyklon-B, and as the Allied troops near, the SS flee. Against all odds, the three mothers and their newborns survive their treacherous journey to freedom. On the seventieth anniversary of Mauthausen’s liberation from the Nazis by American soldiers, renowned biographer Wendy Holden recounts this extraordinary story of three children united by their mothers’ unbelievable—yet ultimately successful—fight for survival.
