“If I Survive.” This thought haunted Lena. Her loved ones perished in the Treblinka Death Camp. This is a true story of Holocaust survival. The story of Nazi Germany and the Jews is a story of anti-Semitism, gas chambers, genocide and World War 2.
Author Barbara Miller adds to Holocaust history by skillfully weaving her research with Lena’s diary and interviews to bring her biography to life. Lena is 100 years old, in January 2019, and her miraculous story of survival against the odds will inspire you to not give up no matter how dark the time or difficult the situation or cruel the people around you.
This is a compelling, indeed exemplary work, that merges the history of the Holocaust with the life story of one survivor: Lena Goldstein, aged 100, one of the last living witnesses to the horrors of the Holocaust.

Another important book from the celebrated writer Barbara Miller. Expertly researched and skillfully written, this personal story of a hundred-year-old Warsaw Ghetto survivor becomes a heart-wrenching narrative of heroism and perseverance against all odds. A significant addition to the Holocaust studies, this book is a must-read.
