Lily's Promise: How I Survived Auschwitz and Found the Strength to Live
About this deal
The beauty and optimism of Lily’s words are a light in a world that needs to hear her story now more than ever.
Myslím na to, o koľko lepšie poznám svoju prababičku než pred rokom, keď sme so štyrmi generáciami rodiny šťastne oslavovali jej narodeniny v Bournemouthe. But, none of the books of this genre that I have read over the past 10 years have moved me, nor have really shown me and led me to feel, what true hell their experiences were. Thus Lily could at last carry out her Yom Kippur 1944 promise that the would let the world know what happened and she now continues to do so, working with schoolchildren through the Holocaust Educational Trust and other organisations.There she promises herself to not only survive Hitler’s hell, but she would tell her story to the world for those who could not.
I finally finish reading it today, it a hard read but necessary to make sure no one forget about what happen and how cruel some people can be. Lily has dedicated her life to sharing her astonishing story so that the world would never again descend into such depths.
The true memoir of Lily's moving journey from Hungary to Auschwitz, Israel to London should be read to understand the full horrors of the time. With your soul fed by a small act of resistance, even if it made no difference to anyone else, you imagined you could live for just a tiny bit longer…. Neďaleko sa týčil vysoký komín, z ktorého sa zúrivo dymilo a občas z neho vyleteli jasné červené plamene.
