Summary
  • "In 1944, twenty-two-year-old Piera Sonnino, an Italian Jew, was arrested with her entire family and deported to Auschwitz. She alone survived, and ten years after her return home from the concentration camps, she found the courage and the strength to write an account of what had happened to her family. With an understated elegance and precision reminiscent of Primo Levi - who was deported to Auschwitz that same year at age twenty-five - Piera Sonnino tells the tragic story of the deportation, the suffering, and the death of her parents, three brothers, and two sisters."
  • "Written as a family record and not intended for publication, Sonnino's manuscript was recently discovered in Italy. Published here for the first time in English, this poignant and extraordinarily well-written testimony is strikingly accurate in bringing to life the methodical and relentless erosion of the freedoms and the dignity of the Jews in Italy - from Mussolini's racial laws enacted in 1938 to the institutionalized horror of Auschwitz. Piera Sonnino's words, her legacy, and her memory have the power to disarm these unspeakable evils."--BOOK JACKET
