The true story of one girl’s fight for survival against the unspeakable terror of Auschwitz – an important and sensitive retelling.

Tova Friedman was just five years old when she and her mother were sent to a Nazi labour camp. She turned six in Auschwitz. At twelve she was on her way to America, ready to start a new life and tell her tale of survival.

From the destruction of the Jewish ghetto in central Poland, where she lived as a young girl, to the dark days of the camps and eventual liberation by Russian forces in 1945, Tova’s story is one of incredible courage, resilience, bravery and the enduring power of hope.

Her extraordinary journey – told in the bestselling The Daughter of Auschwitz – is reimagined here for young readers with respected children’s author Hilary Freeman. It includes historical context about the Second World War and the Holocaust, an afterword that contextualises Tova’s later life and work campaigning against antisemitism, and a Q&A section featuring the questions she’s most frequently asked about her story.

An extraordinary true account that will help young readers understand the scale of what happened and why it must never happen again.
