by Edith Singer
In March to Freedom: A Memoir of the Holocaust, Edith Singer gives a first-hand account of the Holocaust. When she was 16, the Nazis placed Edith and her family in the Auschwitz death camp. This memoir describes daily life in camp: meals, roll call, sleeping, selections, tattoos, sabotage, miracles, and eventually her march to freedom. Unlike other books on the holocaust, this memoir is positive; amidst unimaginable loss of human rights, Edith maintains her faith, takes risks, and makes sacrifices for others. Edith was interviewed for Stephen Spielbergs Shoah Project, and a portion of that interview was shown on a Barbara Walters report on 20/20.
