Franci's War: The Incredible True Story of One Woman's Survival of the Holocaust

9780241441060

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

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 In this astonishing memoir, unpublished for 50 years, Franci lays bare the appalling sacrifices she and other women had to make to survive.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