A mother tells her daughter of the day by day horrors she endured during the Holocaust and how the thought of her daughter's safety kept her alive through incredible privation and suffering. For the daughter, it must be a comforting explanation of what happened and why she was seemingly abandoned. I found the book engrossing and hard to put down.

I read this in one night. The story of survival in the midst of horror. One amazing young woman's Holocaust saga in an Auschwitz work camp, sabotaging armaments designed for Germans, making bold choices and finding a way to live... and be united with her mother and sister. She is still alive in her late 80's, married to the same Russian man she met 65 years ago and recounts her story in a powerful and breathtaking way.

Well I don't love it but my niece did. Book came in great condition and my niece was happy.

This is a really good book, although I had a hard time getting through parts of it. Two things struck me the most. The first was how young the author was when she first experienced anti-semitism. That just tears me up inside to have a child treated so badly because of something that isn't their fault. The second thing was the letter in the back of the book written by the authors granddaughter to her grandmother after she had visited Auschwitz in 2006. You could tell how very proud she was of her grandmother, that feeling just jumps off the page at you. I'm so very glad I got to read this book.

I borrowed and read the book many years ago and loved the story. I decided I had to own it for myself. In great condition.

I had the honor of having met Mrs. Singer at the Museum of Tolerance in L.A. a few years ago. She recited the book almost word-for-word. One cannot help but feel quite humbled at what we take for granted on a daily basis. Being a teacher, Mrs. Singer wrote the book in a short, simple manner - for all to understand. Even so, the depth of the book is far more than can be contained in 102 pages. I now use this book in my classroom. Edith Singer is an impressive woman, to say the very least. I pray that others continue to be blessed by her story for generations to come.

Sixty-three years have passed since the Germans surrendered to Allied forces in the spring of 1945, yet the horror of Nazi atrocities remains as vivid in our collective social consciousness as ever. Books written by and about concentration camp survivors continue to be relevant today, reaching into the hearts and minds of yet another generation for whom the idea of genocide seems more like something from the movies than from history.

Edith Singer is one of those clear voices bridging the past to the present. Her direct and insightful perusal of her experiences in Auschwitz strikes a strangely alarming mix of emotions within the soul. One so far removed from them by both time and political systems feels both a sense of disbelief that such inhumanity could really have occurred, and of dread that if it happened once it could very well happen again.

Ms. Singer's nearly detached observations of events that were most assuredly the stuff of nightmares, demonstrates just how deeply affected she was by them, like a physician desensitized to the carnage around him. Without that desensitization, his emotions would overwhelm him and he could do no good. Ms. Singer likewise allows the reader to draw his responses from his own reservoir of suppressed emotion.

The effect is startling. From her description of standing naked as Joseph Mengele selected the day's gas chamber victims, to the absence of children in the camp due to their immediate executions upon arrival at Auschwitz, the reader cannot help but be changed by Singer's tale.

For this reason, March to Freedom stands as a vivid reminder of the depths to which humanity can sink if left unchecked, and of the heights to which we can and should reach to keep freedom in our grasp.

In March to Freedom Edith Singer states, "When I was liberated by the Russian Army on May 8, 1945, in a small German village, I promised myself that I would not talk or think about concentration camp ever again." How fortunate the world is that she did not keep her promise. March to Freedom is an excellent read that illustrates a young woman's fight for survival through one of the darkest periods in human history.

Although the Jewish Holocaust is one of the most horrific moments in world history, it must be remembered, and the stories must be told if humanity is to learn from the past and prevent its mistakes from reoccurring.

Edith Singer demonstrates courage and strength throughout the pages of her personal memoir sharing her experiences in Auschwitz and the Taucha labor camp with explicit detail. Singer's narrative tone, personal stories, and attention to detail permit readers of all ages to experience her journey of survival. In less than one hundred pages, readers witness her unwavering dedication to life. She explains how as a young woman she fought against the Germans and maintained dignity even when they attempted to destroy her identity. When forced to receive a tattoo on her arm, she expressed, "They are de-humanizing me. I will not be a person any more, only a number. Now, I am marked just like cattle"(52). Despite the evils of humanity, Edith Singer shines as a beacon of hope, retains her faith, and encourages others to stay strong. Even when she is weak from starvation and tempted with extra food, she remains vigilant and determined to fight against the Germans by sabotaging munitions. Her example of strength and honor is expressed throughout the book and readers will learn valuable lessons from her experiences. Edith Singer's personal story of survival is an inspiration to all and should not be missed.

As the number of Holocaust survivors dwindles, it is increasingly important to document their stories, so humanity can truly understand the plight of those who survived the worst atrocity in humanity's extended existence. All who read March to Freedom will gain a deeper understanding of the Holocaust and how those who experienced its horrific devastation were forever changed and should never be forgotten.
