"This is much more than a survival story. It is the story of how the scars of a woman can be and are passed through generations. It is about being a woman, a mother, and a daughter."—Gabriela Almeida, Continente

"An infinite work."—O Estadão de São Paulo

A groundbreaking use of storytelling to bear witness to the Holocaust features three generations of women's own voices—Lili's diary written upon liberation from Auschwitz; daughter Noemi Jaffe exploring the power of memory, survival, and bearing witness; and granddaughter Leda, Noemi's daughter, on the significance of the Holocaust and Jewish identity seventy years after the war.
