Eva Schloss recounts the story of her long journey home after the liberation of Auschwitz and looks back at her family’s culturally rich life before tragedy struck. Her story begins in Amsterdam, like Eva Schloss’s school-fellow, Anne Frank, whose father married Eva Schloss’s mother after the war. This remarkable woman tells a tale of both tragedy and survival that induces humility and awe in all privileged to hear it.

Eva Schloss became a professional photographer after the war (using the Leica camera, a present from Otto Frank). She co-founded The Anne Frank Trust in 1990 and educates people on the perils of intolerance through her books and talks.
