In eighteen months of hell she came close to death more than once.
Her mother, who risked her life to visit Lidia, gave her strength. But when the camp was liberated, her mother was gone, presumed dead. Lidia, by now deeply traumatised, was adopted by a Polish woman.
But then, in 1962, she discovered that her birth parents were still alive in the USSR, and Lidia was faced with an agonising choice.
Lidia's extraordinary story has touched hearts around the world, and she has made it her mission to bear witness to the Holocaust so that the truth may never be forgotten. This is a powerful and ultimately hopeful account by a remarkable woman who refuses to hate those who hurt her. She says, 'Hate only brings more hate'.
