Overview

In March of 1944, at age 10, little Eva was arrested with her entire family, including her twin sister, Miriam, for the crime of being Jewish.

Nazis loaded Eva and her family into a cattle car with other men, women, and children headed to the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp. Within moments of their arrival, the twins lost their entire family to the gas chambers without a chance to say goodbye. Because twins were considered valuable for research, the girls were spared immediate death by Josef Mengele, the Nazi doctor and war criminal, in favor of experimentation and torture.

This stunning, heartbreaking illustrated biography tells the story of a tenacious girl’s fight to survive a horrific childhood ravaged by tragedy; her growing anger as an adult who settled in Terre Haute, Indiana; and her eventual discovery that forgiveness might just save her life.

Reviews

The art is detailed and conveys the terror, grief and fear of the Nazis' victims as well as the depravity of the Nazis themselves. The simple black and white drawings suggest an old movie or a nightmare. Most of the illustrations in the first part of the book are very dark, some with large areas of solid black, especially the illustration of Hitler. This is contrasted by the illustrations in the last part of the book, which have more white space, and many more curves as opposed to the sharp lines and angles of the first section. Readers who enjoyed Art Spiegelman's Maus, and more recently George Takei's They Called Us Enemy or Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis, will also appreciate this book.
