Eva’s Story: A Survivor’s Tale by the Stepsister of Anne Frank

by Eva Schloss

Many know the tragic story of Anne Frank, the teenage girl who lost her life in a concentration camp. But most people don’t know about Eva Schloss, Anne’s playmate and posthumous stepsister. Though Eva, like Anne, was imprisoned in Auschwitz at the age of 15, her story did not end there. Together with her mother, Eva endured daily degradation at the hands of the Nazis. She survived the prison camps, but it would be decades before Eva was able to tell her survivor’s tale.

Concluding with a revealing new interview with Eva, this moving memoir recounts — without bitterness or hatred — the horrors of war, the love between mother and daughter, and the strength and determination that helped a family overcome danger and tragedy.
