About this deal

From there she and her sisters became slave labour in a munitions factory, and then faced a death march that they barely survived.

When Holocaust survivor Lily Ebert BEM published her book in 2021, it became an instant Sunday Times Bestseller, widely celebrated as an incredibly powerful account of her story.

An incredible, beautiful written page turner, I didn’t want the book to end- and not only because the story shows, photos which are interesting and was very suspense that keeps you riveted from the start to the end. Lily and her sisters and some others whom they befriended essentially survived by having a mutual support network and being determined to stay together to maintain a small oasis of sanity amid the madness and horror.

I received a complimentary e-ARC copy of Lily’s Promise via NetGalley from the publisher, HarperOne. I have read a number of Auschwitz books and they have only ever really detailed life from getting off the train at Birkenau and the horrors that came after.Lily had promised herself that if she survived Auschwitz she would tell everyone the truth about the camp. Review to I know it is not correct English to use the same word twice in a sentence but I hope you will forgive me in this instance because the word is so appropriate. I love the responsibility of that, and while I am not Jewish, I have tried to do my part in that responsibility with my own children.

Como todos os livros de testemunhos de Auschwitz, para além de carregar os horrores experienciados, também transmite uma enorme mensagem de esperança.

Your Grandson is a wonderful person who deserves the highest praise for encouraging and supporting you to tell your story and then find so many answers for you. It tells of the of the realities of the holocaust without delving deep into the horrors of the camps. It wasn't easy; the pain of her past was always with her, but this extraordinary woman found the strength to speak out in the hope that such evil would never happen again.
