"This memoir of Canadian Holocaust survivor Judith Rubinstein is about her life in Hungary before the war, being moved to a ghetto in Hungary after the Nazi invasion of 1944, being transported to Auschwitz, observing the Auschwitz Uprising as a Kommando who cleaned the watch towers before being shipped to Ravensbruck and then Malchow labour/concentration camps, and then being liberated in May 1945. Judith spends three years in a UNRRA Displaced Persons camp in Italy. Judith finally immigrates to Canada and builds a life with her family in Toronto. Backcover/catalogue synopsis: The train from Hungary to Auschwitz brings Judith face-to-face with Dr. Mengele, the Angel of Death, who decides her fate. Her mother's quick actions are all that stand between her and certain death. At twenty-four years old, she struggles to stay alive after being separated from her family as they pass from the ghettos of Hungary to the Nazi labour and concentration camps. Judith endures the destruction of her family, yet rebuilds her life and dignity."-- Provided by publisher.
