RENA'S PROMISE: TWO SISTERS IN AUSCHWITZ

Here's the set-up:
Imagining that, by volunteering for a work camp, she would somehow be protecting her family from the Nazis, Rena, at age 17, put on her best clothes, left her fiance and the Polish village of Tylicz in the Carpathian Mountains and was sent off to Auschwitz. Presently, her sister Danka arrived, as did cousins, schoolmates and neighbors. As a child, she had promised her mother to look after her baby sister, and that promise obsessed her throughout her incarceration in the camp. It gave her reason to survive, so that one day she could bring Danka safely home. How they escaped starvation, beatings, the crematorium, the medical experiments of the notorious Josef Mengele and survived the end of the war is all recounted here in this spirited survivor's testament, written with freelancer Macadam. After the war, Rena married a Red Cross worker and emigrated to the U.S., following her sister.

Publisher's Weekly

One Reviewer Notes:
The most historically accurate book ever written of the first transport of women into Auschwitz--the only book ever written by a survivor of that transport, who survived 3 years and 41 days in the camps.
Irena Strezlecka, Director of the Museum of Women at Auschwitz
About the Author


RENE KORNREICH GELISSEN
How do you go from being a grandmother to a writer? Well, you need someone with kind eyes to sit across from you so when you tell your story you can see your tears reflected in hers and you know what you went through is not only real, but touching the next generation.

If I have any motto for life after 3 years in Auschwitz it is this: The heart is only so big. So I do not hate. To hate is to let Hitler win.
Please pass it on. Love, Rena
