Synopsis

Discover true strength and unrelenting spirit in the extraordinary true story of Franci: a woman who survived the holocaust against all of the odds



'Achingly moving, gives much-needed hope. Deserves the status both as a valuable historical source and as a stand-out memoir' Daily Express



'A story that needs to be heard' 5***** Reader Review

______



In 1942 Franci Epstein, a young Jewish woman, was imprisoned in Terezin, a concentration camp close to her home in Prague.



Few could expect anything other than death. But for Franci it was the start of a journey that would take her into the very heart of Nazi genocide.



Through a combination of guile, ingenuity, endurance and sheer bloody mindedness, Franci survived not one but five death camps, including Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen.



In this astonishing memoir, unpublished for 50 years, Franci lays bare the appalling sacrifices she and other women had to make to survive.



It is a story of hope in the face of suffering; of one woman's determination to live.
