“My mother's life was full of challenges. She was very close to death early in her life. She accepted those challenges without self-pity, always with hope and belief in a better life. She always tried to face up to each situation with dignity and fortitude.”

-from Chapter Ten: Reflections

Perfect for students of history, those interested or intrigued by personal histories of World War II, or anyone else looking for a touching generational read, this book is written by the daughter of a holocaust survivor. Margit did not tell her story while she lived, but her daughter did. Through traveling to Germany, revealing Margit’s several cards and letters written from within her detention center, and uncovering personal photos and maps, Angie Osborn’s journey to discover the story of the fourteen year old girl who survived and escaped from a concentration camp in 1945 Germany is uniquely heartrending. Osborn does not embellish her mother’s story, but manages to write a compelling story through only the cold hard facts, revealing the strength of character and enduring spirit of her dear mother.

Includes photos, maps, and numerous documents from Margit's personal history. Three appendices.
