In her memoir, Livia Bitton-Jackson (then known as Elli Friedmann) describes her experiences as a young teenager during the Holocaust. When she was just 13, Hungarian authorities, collaborating with the Nazis, forced Jews in her community to move into a transit ghetto, stripping them of their property and their freedom. She recounts in powerful language her subsequent deportation to Auschwitz and the dehumanization she and her mother experienced as prisoners in Nazi camps. This unflinching account introduces readers to the stark realities and devastating effects of violence and deprivation during the Holocaust.
