Edith eger tells her life story of how she got deported to auschwitz, survived several concentration camps and how the experiences of WWII influenced her life, mainly in her search for a career and her relationship with her husband and her children.
Eger does not hide the fact that it took most of her life to work through the trauma of WWII, which she describes with the help of the cases of her own patients as a psychologist.
Eger?s work and general attitude towards life is truly inspiring and every reader will take away a valuable life lesson by reading this book.


A native of Hungary, Edith Eger was a teenager in 1944 when she and her family were sent to Auschwitz during the Second World War. Despite overwhelming odds, Edith survived the Holocaust and moved with her husband to the United States. Having worked in a factory whilst raising her young family, she went on to graduate with a PhD from the University of Texas and became an eminent psychologist. Today, she maintains a busy clinical practice and lectures around the world.
