Memoirs of a Survivor

This gripping and highly acclaimed account of a young woman's experience in concentration camps now includes a final chapter, "A Time to Forgive?" detailing the author's trips back to her former forced labor camp in Germany.

"European culture may have failed the human race during the crucial Holocaust years, but it is vindicated in this memoir in the person of the young Judith Magyar."--Freema Gottlieb, New York Times Book Review

"We must be grateful to [Isaacson] for her courage to relive the anguish in order to write this remarkable book."--Bernard Lown, M.D., corecipient of the 1985 Nobel Peace Prize

"What informs the story in this book is an indomitable optimism despite great odds."--Yaacov Luria, Jewish Post and Opinion

"This frank, first-person account of the author as a nineteen-year-old Hungarian Jewish girls sent to Auschwitz has an immediacy that will reach teens and a message of courage and hope amid horror that will touch them."--Candace Smith, ALA Booklist

"Its lucidity and mixture of detachment and personal presence make it unique among memoirs of Holocaust survivors. This is more than an account of our century's most fearful event. It is reportage from the soul and, as such, is quite extraordinary."--Rod MacLeish, former book critic and commentator for National Public Radio's "Morning Edition"

Judith Magyar Isaacson is a retired dean of students at Bates College. She is a survivor of Auschwitz-Birkenau and Hessisch-Lichtenau.
