Helen Waterford, a Holocaust survivor who lectures about her experiences during World War II, has written a moving testament both to her will to survive and to her determination to live a life without bitterness for what she endured. Recalling her prewar life in Germany and Amsterdam, and her postwar life in the United States, as well as her imprisonment in Nazi camps, Waterford is unusual in her refusal to hate. She often lectures with a former fanatic Nazi, and together they attempt to educate young Americans about the horrors of the Holocaust. An important addition to Holocaust collections--Library Journal

She was a young German Jew. He was an ardent member of the Hitler Youth. This is the story of their parallel journey through World War II. Helen Waterford and Alfons Heck were born just a few miles from each other in the German Rhineland. But their lives took radically different courses: Helen's to the Auschwitz extermination camp; Alfons to a high rank in the Hitler Youth. While Helen was hiding in Amsterdam, Alfons was a fanatic believer in Hitler's "master race." While she was crammed in a cattle car bound for the death camp Auschwitz, he was a teenage commander of frontline troops, ready to fight and die for the glory of Hitler and the Fatherland. This book tells both of their stories, side-by-side, in an overwhelming account of the nightmare that was WWII. The ... stories of these two ... people must stand as a ... lesson to us all.-Back cover
