    Summary:

    Ruth Elias, a Jewish woman who was taken to Auschwitz while several months pregnant, recounts her challenging and unthinkable story of confronting perhaps the most agonizing choice so that she and her newborn infant would not die. Taken for Nazi medical experimentation, she confronted the infamous Dr. Josef Mengele and saved the life of not only herself but her child as well.This award-winning and internationally acclaimed testament features accounts of the aftermath of her imprisonment and the difficult path to a new life in a new land: Israel, where new challenges and obstacles awaited her.
