It's all about six degrees both for the author and me. I had a small connection with Eva Schloss's mother. There used to be an elegant cafe in Swiss Cottage (view spoiler) where the was a dinner-jacketed pianist tinkling the keys of a grand piano with pre-war dance music every afternoon. Most of the customers were very old, well-dressed ladies with p ...more

A Course in Miracles

I always experience a sense of greatness and smallness, whenever I read about these Auschwitz survivors.

Greatness, cos they were all ordinary people -- anonimous human beings like most of us, who found some hidden powers which granted them life, while 6 millions of others like them, perished.
Therefore, since I'm also human, ordinary, and anonimous, by means of some rudimentary induction, I conclude that it's quite likely for me to have those very same fabulous powers hidden s

The Infinite Power of Hope

6 millions of jews perished in the Holocaust!

Eva Schloss survived!

How did she do it?

Hope? Luck? Miracles?...

She said in an interview that if it wasn't for hope, she wouldn't be there sitting and talking to her interviewer.
Not just hope -- she adds -- cos she was also blessed with some miracles!

I believe those miracles were conquered by her determination to go on living -- they happened, to testify the infinite power of hope!...

All in all, there's a great lesson in Holoc

O Poder Infinito da Esperança

6 milhões de judeus pereceram no Holocausto!

Eva Schloss sobreviveu:

Na entrevista que acabaram de ver, Eva Schloss atribui a sua sobrevivência a uma combinação de esperança e milagres.
Porém, pergunto-me se não terá sido a esperança -- a sua determinação obstinada em prosseguir com a vida -- a fautora de tais milagres?!...

Se é verdade que enquanto há vida há esperança, a recíproca não me parece menos verdadeira:

Enquanto há espera

"A few months ago I finished speaking, and looked down at a class of schoolchildren. A Somali girl with dark eyes hesitantly put her hand up and asked, 'Do you think it will happen again?' I can't answer that, but maybe you can. Will it? I hope not."

In this short and direct conclusion, Eva Schloss sums up her life story with a single wish, never again. Schloss' book is gritty and painful to read, like any Holocaust memoir must be. However, this hope permeates through the darkness. Her hope for a

A powerful, direct book. I believe the Author was definitely inlfuenced by her time in Holland, becauseher style is in a way "very dutch" - straightforward, candid, focusing on a true account and sharing even emption in a streamlined way...
Anyway, one of the aspects of the book that I most loved was the fact tat it satrted BEFORE the camps and it finnished around 2012. The gift of this is twofold: on the one hand, it brings a lot of color into the story, not just the helpless grey of stories com

Todos os livros sobre a segunda guerra mundial conquistam-me de uma forma diferente, cada um fica com um pouco de mim. Este livro é tão pessoal e tão humano. Este livro relembra que a segunda guerra mundial não é apenas uma história, foi real e houve muito sofrimento durante e mesmo depois da guerra. São marcas que ficaram gravadas e que nunca desapareceram.

"Mamã, isto é o fim do mundo?"

Eva Schloss conta-nos a história da sua vida. Uma história sobre coragem, sobrevivência e esperança, apesar de todos os acontecimentos exteriores e independentes do controlo individual. Do conforto da sua acolhedora casa de família, movida pela subida ao poder de Hitler, Eva viaja com a sua família até que têm de se dividir. Com a mãe vive numa pensão e mais tarde numa casa de holandeses que ajudavam judeus até serem apanhadas e serem enviadas para o campo de concen

In copertina possiamo leggere che "questo libro inizia dove finisce il Diario di Anna Frank"... ed è proprio così, visto che questo lavoro, in pratica, non è altro che una impressionante documentazione "in presa diretta" degli orrori nazisti da parte di Eva Schloss, una sopravvissuta al campo di concentramento di Auschwitz e coetanea della più famosa Anna. Altro legame che unisce le due ragazzine è il fatto che, una volta scampati e tornati da Auschwitz, il padre di Anna sposa la madre di Eva. S ...more

"After Auschwitz" is a very moving autobiography of Eva Schloss.

While everyone is aware of Anne Frank because of her diary and her museum, not many know about Eva. Anne's father lost her wife and her daughters. He later married Eva's mother who had lost her husband and her son in the holocaust.

Eva survived after spending time at the Auschwitz concentration camp. This is her story before and after the horrific days.
As expected from any survivor's tale, it is extremely moving and at times painful

I could not even try to give this a justified review.

Eva's 15th birthday she was captured by the Nazi's and taken to Auschwitz. There she endured so many things unimaginable. After liberation, her mother married Otto Frank, Anne Franks father, and we hear Eva tell what it was like before, during, & after Auschwitz.

Words cannot describe. That is all.

Si hubiera que elegir una palabra para describir este libro seria "revelador" he leído muchas cosas sobre el holocausto, pero todas iban mas o menos al mismo punto, la historia de algún superviviente de campo de concentración, pero este libro es como un respiro de tanta amargura y tanto dolor , es una espiral de los sinsentidos que vivieron los que salieron "vivos" a duras penas, que pasa después, como vives con la culpa de haber sobrevivido, como lo hiciste? Que suerte te acompaño... Y sobre to ...more

Very interesting and well-written story. Surprisingly even though I wanted to keep reading it didn't move me as much as I thought it would. perhaps if it had been written more from the heart it would have. It is in the voice of someone standing back from the events and maybe that is because Eva has never really let herself fully feel what happened to her or let others see her pain. Well worth a read.

Muito bom! Apesar de ser manifestamente o meu tipo de livro preferido (história verídica num momento histórico importante) penso que toda a gente irá gostar.
Gostei especialmente de saber mais detalhadamente o desenrolar da 2ª Guerra Mundial.

Eva's story of how she and her mother survived Auschwitz and her life after Auschwitz. Eva was born in Austria and had to move after the German Nazi's came in to the country. Eventually ending up in Amsterdam, the family became brief acquaintance of the Frank family, living in Amsterdam as well, even knowing Anne for a little while. After the Holocaust Eva and her mother returned to Amsterdam, her father and brother having passed. We see her life and her thoughts after this time, and how Otto Fr ...more

"There can be no justice if it doesn't happen in THIS world"

Boy, how true is that.

The fact I can't get desensitized to these holocaust stories and always come for more is a bad thing in a good kind of way. I suffer all along every time, but some things must not be forgotten.

Good part of this book is about aftermath of holocaust, mental, social, and physical state of survivors, which is something that definitely received less publicity than actual events.
Monica Anderson
Both sad and encouraging. I discovered this book at the Auschwitz-Birkenau bookstore in Poland. Eva's story and her tie to Anne Frank weave a personal connection to a story we know so well and one we did not. The juxtaposition of one girl living and one girl dying provides such a stark reminder of the toll WWII's atrocities took in the Jewish communities. We should all remember and choose compassion.

A compelling autobiography of Eva Schloss and her survival after being in a concentration camp, this book helped understanding of life during German occupation and how prisoners coped in Auschwitz. It was also interesting to read about her life after the camps were liberated, since so many prisoners hadn't been lucky enough to survive.

Já li diversos livros sobre o Holocausto, mas este será, certamente, um dos que mais me cativou. A forma como a autora descreve os acontecimentos - vividos por uma adolescente que lutou pela sua sobrevivência num dos períodos mais tristes da história da humanidade - tem algo que nos envolve na narrativa e nos faz compreender o que foi aquele período.

Uno puede leer varios libros y películas sobre sobrevivientes del Holocausto y pensar que es increíble la cantidad de judíos, gitanos y razas minorías tuvieron que sufrir en 1940 los campos de concentración. Eva Schloss hace además una anotación más precisa: El Holocausto ocurrió por un Hitler, pero también porque la gente dejó que pasara.

Her father and brother forced to the men's camp and Eva and her mother to the women's.

In its own quiet way this book is profoundly moving and sensational. Eva's story - from her idyllic childhood in Vienna is overlain with the subtle and evil atmosphere of the coming German Anschluss and before you know it the family are being displaced as refugees to Belgium and then Holland. In Amsterdam you see the humanity of some and the evil of others as Jews are either hidden and protected or turned over to the Nazis. Unfortunately Eva's family are betrayed and they are sent to Auschwitz. ...more

The name of the book is deceptive as the first half describes the lives of the Schloss family before and during World War II. The story is told from the point of view of Eva, who survives the holocaust, together with her mother, Fritzi. Her brother and father do not.

Eva’s mother is remarried after the war - to Otto - the father of Anne Frank, who sadly perished at this time and whose famous diary explains her life during the extermination of millions of Jews under Hitler’s reign.

From Wikipedia: "People Associated with Anne Frank" -

Eva Geiringer shared a remarkably similar history with Anne. The Geiringers lived on the opposite side of Merwedeplein, the square where the Frank's apartment was located, and Eva and Anne were almost exactly the same age. Eva was also a close friend of Sanne Ledermann, and she knew both Anne and Margot.

Eva described herself as an out-and-out
