Even in hell, hope can flower

THE AWARD-WINNING SUNDAY TIMES AND NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Even in hell, hope can flower

'I'll be forever changed by her story' - Oprah Winfrey

‘Extraordinary….will stick with you long after you read it’ - Bill Gates

'One of those rare and eternal stories you don't want to end' - Desmond Tutu

'A masterpiece of holocaust literature. Her memoir, like her life, is extraordinary, harrowing and inspiring in equal measure' - The Times Literary Supplement

‘I can’t imagine a more important message for modern times. Eger’s book is a triumph' - The New York Times

In 1944, sixteen-year-old ballerina Edith Eger was sent to Auschwitz. Separated from her parents on arrival, she endures unimaginable experiences, including being made to dance for the infamous Josef Mengele. When the camp is finally liberated, she is pulled from a pile of bodies, barely alive.

The horrors of the Holocaust didn't break Edith. In fact, they helped her learn to live again with a life-affirming strength and a truly remarkable resilience.

The Choice is her unforgettable story. It shows that hope can flower in the most unlikely places.

Breath taking - what an impressive woman

Unlike other books that are mere descriptions similar to news broadcasts Edie describes not only numerous unforgettable situations but also her emotions that went with it – and haunted her for decades. Some of these incidents call for a break before continuing reading. Most impressive are the descriptions of her way back to a normal life facing how the holocaust changed her life forever. And on top of that helping others to recover from their PTSD – in turn also helping her to forgive as well as to reach and cherish her own real freedom. And leave the reader with questions like 'how about myself?'

Eines der besten Bücher meines Lebens
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden aus Haar am 12.03.2019

Das Buch ist überraschend positiv geschrieben. Die Autorin würde ich am liebsten persönlich kennenlernen um ihr für die Inspirierung zu danken. Am liebsten würde ich es alle lesen lassen die ich kenne. So toll finde ich es! Sehr beeindruckend. Man glaubt gar nicht, dass es kein Roman ist sondern tatsächlich eine Autobiografie.
