About this deal

Ela fez uma promessa ainda no campo de concentração, disse que iria contar a todos o que se passava lá. I knew that place very well and the people who lived there… I realized what they had done to those families being their neighbours. Dov, equally committed to sharing Lily’s story, is leading the way as a role-model for young people across the world for Holocaust education and remembrance.

Myslím na to, o koľko lepšie poznám svoju prababičku než pred rokom, keď sme so štyrmi generáciami rodiny šťastne oslavovali jej narodeniny v Bournemouthe. This woman’s story is incredible from her life in Hungary, her courage in surviving auschwitz and an inspirational account of how. So many people died because they were different than those who thought of themselves as the master race.Stories of victims trading food for the Torah, or still finding time for regular prayer show us that many people demonstrated immense resilience and determination to keep going, in spite of all the darkness they faced.

Lord Alan Sugar A stunningly moving book about the power of hope and love to overcome the very worst of mankind. Como todos os livros de testemunhos de Auschwitz, para além de carregar os horrores experienciados, também transmite uma enorme mensagem de esperança. She is a founder member of the Holocaust Survivors Centre and was awarded the British Empire Medal for services to Holocaust education. The "what happens afterwards" is just as important because it directly impacts all your offspring, and blessed be. Every Holocaust survivor’s story I read adds a new perspective on the unimaginable suffering they went through.It also has chapters from Dov (her grandson) who helped lily in reaching out on social media to fill gaps in her story. An incredible, beautiful written page turner, I didn’t want the book to end- and not only because the story shows, photos which are interesting and was very suspense that keeps you riveted from the start to the end. So I did not start reading this book without prior knowledge -to some degree - of survivors’ experiences. Keď Lily Ebertovú v roku 1945 oslobodili, americký židovský vojak jej dal bankovku, na ktorú napísal: „Veľa šťastia a radosti. She is 97 years old, an incredible woman that has survived the camps, and went through so much hope, love, strength and yet she has survived Covid-19.

I saw Lily Ebert and her great grandson, Dov Forman, on The View around the time this book was published. všetkému boli ľudia vystavení, ako neľudsky sa s nimi zaobchádzalo a tiež ako dokázali prežiť, hoci si dnes ani nevieme predstaviť ich utrpenie a bolesť. For decades Lily could not talk about her experiences in the Holocaust, her fellow citizens in Israel being divided essentially into two categories, fellow survivors with whom it was felt there was no need to talk about it, and those, like Shmuel, who had not been through those experiences and who could never understood what the survivors had been through.This book was a very detailed and heartbreaking read of exactly what the Jewish community had to endure during those years in the war. The Holocaust as everybody knows was inhumane and pure evil but I still find that some things shock me to my core, to believe that any one human could do that to another human is a bitter pill to swallow and so unimaginable that it hurts to think about. This is an intensely moving and inspirational memoir by a Holocaust survivor, the now 98 year old Lily Ebert (nee Engelmann), survivor of Auschwitz, of one of the Buchenwald satellite camps and of a forced death march across Germany before being rescued by US soldiers in April 1945. O facto de que as pessoas moldam as suas verdades, de modo a não se magoarem tanto e/ou de não causarem tanta dor em quem ouve. It’s disgusting and shocking that humans still are able to harbor so much hatred and do these things, and speaks volumes to the importance of brave souls like Lily who are willing to share their experiences to hopefully educate others and prevent future atrocities.

Lily had promised herself that if she survived Auschwitz she would tell everyone the truth about the camp. That word doesn’t seem at all big enough to contain the intolerance, hate, violence, and despair these people of all ages suffered for so many years. Tracing her life from a happy childhood in Hungary to the harrowing losses experienced in Auschwitz, Lily Ebert’s memoir is a heart-breaking and unforgettable reminder of both the importance of remembering the Holocaust and the incredible power of hope.I finally finish reading it today, it a hard read but necessary to make sure no one forget about what happen and how cruel some people can be.
