    SINOPSE

    Entre as vítimas do Holocausto enviadas para Auschwitz em 1944, três mulheres levavam consigo um segredo quando passaram pelos portões do infame campo de concentração.

    Priska, Rachel e Anka estavam grávidas de poucas semanas, enfrentando um destino incerto longe dos seus maridos. Sozinhas, assustadas, e após terem perdido tantos familiares às mãos dos nazis, sentiam-se determinadas em lutar pelo que lhes restava: as vidas dos seus bebés.

    Estas mulheres deram à luz em circunstâncias inima

    Staggering facts: In six years, the Nazis had killed approximately two thirds of the nine-and-a-half million Jews living in Europe, as well as millions of non-Jews. Only 300,000 of Poland's 3.3 million Jews had survived WWII. The United States eventually accepted some 400,000 refugees but denied many more access to a new life here. Unwelcome anywhere else in the world, many Polish Jews had little alternative but to return to what was by then a Soviet puppet state.

    With survival admittedly just a

    An astonishing story. It is good to be reminded from time to time how horrible people can be and also how remarkably resilient.

    Embora devore tudo o que tenha a ver com este tema e atualmente existirem tantos livros destes, este foi dos livros que mais me marcou em toda a vida.

    Excepcionalmente bem escrito, onde todos os factos e relatos são comportados por uma investigação zelosa.

    Mesmo assim e conhecendo o que se passou, dei por mim várias vezes a chorar e compulsivamente. É um livro que deveria de ser lido por todas as pessoas.

    Atenção que o livro tem imensas gralhas, inclusive, erros ortográficos.

    This book, simply put.... moved me. I'm not Jewish. As far as I know none of my relatives perished during the Holocaust. In fact, aside from telling the stories contained within these pages, the events affect me not at all. Yet, it does.

    When I was 16, my parents took me to Germany. Specifically, to Dachau. There I met a man named Martin. He was a Polish officer who refused to support the Third Reich. He walked me through the camp pointing at things and saying, "They hung my father from that tr

    "Esta é uma história que deve contar às pessoas o que não pode acontecer outra vez."

    É História, todos sabemos o que aconteceu e como aconteceu. Mas ao contrário de milhões de outras histórias sobre esta guerra, a história - real - narrada neste livro é uma história de sobrevivência. É um relato duro, sem filtros, com cores e cheiros, contado a três tempos - antes, durante e depois - e a 3 vozes - Priska, Rachel e Hanka. É um livro muito bem escrito, detalhado - percebe-se todo o trabalho de inv
