People around the world know the tragic story of Anne Frank, the teenage girl who lost her life in a concentration camp during the Holocaust. But most people don't know about Eva Schloss, Anne's playmate and posthumous stepsister. Though Eva, like Anne, was imprisoned in Auschwitz at the age of 15, her story did not end there. Together with her mother, Eva endured daily degradation and countless miseries at the hands of the Nazis. She was freed in 1945, but it would be decades before Eva was able to share her survivor's tale with the world. Concluding with new discussion questions and a revealing interview with Eva, this moving memoir recounts--without bitterness or hatred--the horrors of war, the love between mother and daughter, and the strength and determination that helped a family overcome danger and tragedy.
