A Story of Sisters in Auschwitz By Rena Kornreich Gelissen and Heather Dune Macadam 6"x9" (240 Pages)Publisher: Beacon, 1995
As a young woman, Rena Kornreich endured the Nazi death camps for almost three and a half years. This is the remarkable story of her survival. But the length of Rena's internment is not the only extraordinary aspect of her story. Women's accounts of the Holocaust are rare. Rena's survival story reveals at its core not a lone heroic struggle, but the power of an unusual relationship between sisters. In the tradition of Viktor Frankl's Man's Search for Meaning, Rena's story shows how her relationship with her younger sister, Danka, gave her the will to endure under unimaginable circumstances.
