    This is a beautiful, absolutely pitch-perfect memoir by Dr. Edith Eger. I was not familiar with Dr. Eger prior to reading this, and I am grateful to her for sharing her story. The book is organized into four sections: Prison, Escape, Freedom, and Healing. I would describe it as thr...

    I will admit that I did not expect to enjoy this book. I thought it was going to be another holocaust memoir with a hint of psychological analysis. But man, was I wrong. This book was beautifully written, and was a struggle to put down every night. This book was a small exercise in se...

    An uplifting and powerful lifetime memoir documenting not only the authors experience in Auschwitz but also the longer term recovery, both physically and psychologically. This was an unexpected read in the sense that I anticipated much of the book to be focused on wartime; when in actu...

    No words to describe this. It's life-changing and I will never forget what I read here. Thank you so much for sharing your story, Dr. Eger. It truly was one of the most inspiring books I've ever read. ...

    This is a remarkable story written by Dr. Edith Eva Eger who in 1944 as a sixteen-year-old was sent to Auschwitz and endured unimaginable experiences, including being made to dance for the infamous Josef Mengele. The book tells of her bravery that helped her sister to survive and led ...

    Es difícil ponerte en el lugar de otra persona cuando esta te cuenta su experiencia de vida. Es decir, puedes hacerte una idea y sentir tristeza por todo aquello que le paso y hacer lo posible por brindar consuelo, pero ¿Qué pasa cuando esta experiencia tiene que ver con una sangrie...

    Wow, double wow. This is a memoir about a woman who survived Auschwitz as a child. She went on to be a famous psychologist known for helping people recover from trauma. There are many books about surviving the holocaust but not as many about the saga of recovery. This one does both...

    Words can not express the feelings and emotions I felt reading The Choice. To read first hand what a POW had to endure, saddens me but I also feel privileged that Edith Eger has shared her horrific story with us. Edith Eger, is most definitely up there in the top ten strongest people...

    Never forget. Never again Years ago, I've had the chance of visiting a concentration camp. It was a haunted place, a place that had its soul burnt in the crematories. It is a dark and heavy feeling to know that someone very likely died or feared for their lives where you are casuall...

    Llevaba tiempo detrás de leer este libro y la verdad es que la experiencia no pudo ser más satisfactoria. Me ha gustado, sobre todo, que se centre ya no sólo en lo que le ocurrió en Auschwitz sino en sus años posteriores, cómo siguió adelante con su vida, las secuelas psicológi...

    I finished this book last month but finally adding it on here after the holidays. Profound and unbelievable. Gathering my thoughts and will post review soon. I will note now that this is hands down the best audio narration I?ve ever listened to. Actress Tovah Feldshuh was superb. ...

    "Just remember, no one can take away from you what you've put in your mind." Right before the cattle cars open and Edith and her family are ushered through the gates of the Auschwitz death camp, Edith's mother tells her these words. She is then killed soon after. Everyone under 14 a...

    Excellent moving story thanks Elyse!!!! ...

    I knew from the start this book would touch me. I generally avoid books about WWII and concentrations camps, their horrors too much for me to contemplate. Yet, I felt compelled to read this book. The reason being that from the description I gathered this was about a woman who had survi...

    This is truly an inspirational story of how the author went to Auschwitz and unlike so many others, she survived to share her story. Her story is not just about the terrible things she saw and suffered there but also how she managed to go on living after it happened and turned it in to...

    This is a remarkable story written by Dr. Edith Eva Eger who in 1944 as a sixteen-year-old was sent to Auschwitz and endured unimaginable experiences, including being made to dance for the infamous Josef Mengele. The book tells of her bravery that helped her sister to survive and led ...

    Never forget. Never again Years ago, I've had the chance of visiting a concentration camp. It was a haunted place, a place that had its soul burnt in the crematories. It is a dark and heavy feeling to know that someone very likely died or feared for their lives where you are casuall...

    I will admit that I did not expect to enjoy this book. I thought it was going to be another holocaust memoir with a hint of psychological analysis. But man, was I wrong. This book was beautifully written, and was a struggle to put down every night. This book was a small exercise in se...

    An uplifting and powerful lifetime memoir documenting not only the authors experience in Auschwitz but also the longer term recovery, both physically and psychologically. This was an unexpected read in the sense that I anticipated much of the book to be focused on wartime; when in actu...

    Llevaba tiempo detrás de leer este libro y la verdad es que la experiencia no pudo ser más satisfactoria. Me ha gustado, sobre todo, que se centre ya no sólo en lo que le ocurrió en Auschwitz sino en sus años posteriores, cómo siguió adelante con su vida, las secuelas psicológi...

    I finished this book last month but finally adding it on here after the holidays. Profound and unbelievable. Gathering my thoughts and will post review soon. I will note now that this is hands down the best audio narration I?ve ever listened to. Actress Tovah Feldshuh was superb. ...

    "Just remember, no one can take away from you what you've put in your mind." Right before the cattle cars open and Edith and her family are ushered through the gates of the Auschwitz death camp, Edith's mother tells her these words. She is then killed soon after. Everyone under 14 a...

    Excellent moving story thanks Elyse!!!! ...

    I knew from the start this book would touch me. I generally avoid books about WWII and concentrations camps, their horrors too much for me to contemplate. Yet, I felt compelled to read this book. The reason being that from the description I gathered this was about a woman who had survi...

    ?Time doesn?t heal. It?s what you do with time. Healing is possible when we choose to take responsibility, when we choose to take risks, and finally, when we choose to release the wound, to let go of the past or the grief?. The above excerpt is true - but that doesn?t mea...

    This is a beautiful, absolutely pitch-perfect memoir by Dr. Edith Eger. I was not familiar with Dr. Eger prior to reading this, and I am grateful to her for sharing her story. The book is organized into four sections: Prison, Escape, Freedom, and Healing. I would describe it as thr...

    5 stars Absorbing. Brilliant. A truly inspirational read. What a woman! Edith Eger is now 90 years old and has given the world this outstanding memoir of her survival in Auschwitz as a teenager and then her life after WWII when she and her husband emigrated to America and all the whi...

    full 5 stars book It?s a great mix of holocaust, biography, psychology, though it?s mostly her personal story, with various family members, and to a lesser extent some of her patients included. It?s extremely readable and it flows beautifully, and I didn?t want to put it dow...

    I will admit that I did not expect to enjoy this book. I thought it was going to be another holocaust memoir with a hint of psychological analysis. But man, was I wrong. This book was beautifully written, and was a struggle to put down every night. This book was a small exercise in se...

    This was one of the most beautiful and inspiring books I have ever read. Edith tells the story her extraordinary. The main premise of the book is how she highlights her extraordinary experience as a Holocaust survivor and the how she learned to heal herself. Edith gently takes the read...

    An uplifting and powerful lifetime memoir documenting not only the authors experience in Auschwitz but also the longer term recovery, both physically and psychologically. This was an unexpected read in the sense that I anticipated much of the book to be focused on wartime; when in actu...

    No words to describe this. It's life-changing and I will never forget what I read here. Thank you so much for sharing your story, Dr. Eger. It truly was one of the most inspiring books I've ever read. ...

    This is a remarkable story written by Dr. Edith Eva Eger who in 1944 as a sixteen-year-old was sent to Auschwitz and endured unimaginable experiences, including being made to dance for the infamous Josef Mengele. The book tells of her bravery that helped her sister to survive and led ...

    Wow, double wow. This is a memoir about a woman who survived Auschwitz as a child. She went on to be a famous psychologist known for helping people recover from trauma. There are many books about surviving the holocaust but not as many about the saga of recovery. This one does both...

    Words can not express the feelings and emotions I felt reading The Choice. To read first hand what a POW had to endure, saddens me but I also feel privileged that Edith Eger has shared her horrific story with us. Edith Eger, is most definitely up there in the top ten strongest people...

    Never forget. Never again Years ago, I've had the chance of visiting a concentration camp. It was a haunted place, a place that had its soul burnt in the crematories. It is a dark and heavy feeling to know that someone very likely died or feared for their lives where you are casuall...

    "No existe una jerarquía del sufrimiento. No hay nada que haga que mi dolor sea mejor o peor que el tuyo, no existe ninguna gráfica en la que podamos plasmar la importancia relativa de un pesar respecto a otro." Reseña completa en el blog: http://mdmemories.blogspot.com/2018/0....

    This is truly an inspirational story of how the author went to Auschwitz and unlike so many others, she survived to share her story. Her story is not just about the terrible things she saw and suffered there but also how she managed to go on living after it happened and turned it in to...

    Me maravilla el ser humano. Su potencial. Su fuerza. Su fe. Su transformación. Esta mujer me maravilla aun más. Por su humor. Por su vitalidad. Por su historia (para mi no existe eso de "una historia más del mismo tema"). No creo haber leído a ningún sobreviviente del Holoc...
