“If I survive.” This thought haunted Lena Goldstein. Her loved ones were cruelly forced from her arms in the Warsaw Ghetto in Poland and perished in Treblinka Death Camp. This is a true story of Holocaust survival, written by author Barbara Miller. Lena kept thinking, “It’s my turn next.” How did she survive?
“This is a compelling, indeed exemplary work, that merges the history of the holocaust with the life story of one survivor: Lena Goldstein, aged 100, one of the last living witnesses to the Horrors of the Holocaust.” – Konrad Kwiet, Emeritus Professor and Resident Historian at the Sydney Jewish Museum
“In Lena Goldstein’s story, we journey from her youth in Lublin, Poland, through her life and death struggle in the Warsaw Ghetto, to a new life in Australia. Weaving this in with historical context, author Barbara Miller creates a gripping account of how Lena survived the lowest ebb in Jewish history. Lena’s story will inspire the next generation to be upstanders, and always to have hope!” – Eli Rabinowitz, genealogist and filmmaker
