Note: 
In short, powerful chapters, Elly traces her life from her childhood in a happy family in Romania through her brutal Holocaust experiences at Auschwitz/Birkenau - beginning at age 15 - forced factory work, and eventual liberation and emigration to America with her husband and two children, emphasizing all the points at which she miraculously escaped death. Elly’s poetry is also included. It is similar in style to the book’s economical narrative and also reflects her experiences, including an especially moving poem entitled, “Please Come, Mommy. I Miss you,” and an allegory entitled, “New Birds Fly Again.” Direct, clear, and powerful in its details, it is a good compliment to the Anne Frank diary or other Holocaust personal memoirs.
