Summary A ninety-seven-year-old Holocaust Survivor with an amazing memory, vividly recounts her life in Poland before, during, and after the war; her poignant love story with her future husband, Henry Rosenblatt; and then as an immigrant in America. Strength was not simply surviving the Holocaust; strength was living life to the fullest afterwards. In this harrowing yet uplifting memoir, Mira Rosenblatt tells of the horrors and losses she has lived through and her commitment to tell her story. Luck, resourcefulness, hard work, and the belief that better days were coming were invaluable in helping her survive. The Nazis marched into her hometown of Sosnowiec in the first days of World War II and sixteen-year-old Mira Rosenblatt's life changed forever. She endured unbelievable hardships and suffering as a "Jude" who was no longer considered to be human. Mira powerfully details the horrors she experienced during the Holocaust and its aftereffects, and touchingly describes the challenges of being an immigrant and moving forward in a new country. The author's spirit and heart come through on every page of her compelling memoir. A must-read and valuable addition to Holocaust writings.
