Description - I Have Lived a Thousand Years by Livia Bitton-Jackson

This is the memoir of Elli Friedmann who was thirteen years old in March 1944 when the Nazis invaded Hungary. It describes, in intimate and excrutiating detail, how her world was shattered by their arrival. She tells what it was like to be suddenly forbidden to attend school, talk to neighbours, to forceably leave home and move to a ghetto, lose all privacy and almost starve. But worse was to come in Auschwitz concentration camp. She recounts what it was like to exist there as one of the few teenage inmates and the tiny but miraculous twists of fate that helped her survive against the odds. Although her story is heartbreaking, Elli's enduring hope, perseverance and strength throughout her ordeal make it an inspiring one. Readers will be moved by the intensity of Elli's spirit and her ability to overcome the nightmare that was her daily reality.
