    Gazing at the Stars
    Memories of a Child Survivor
    In March 1939, seven - year - old Eva Weiss's innocence was shattered by Germany's invasion of her homeland, Slovakia. Over the next five years, as the Nazi persecution of Europe's Jews gathered momentum, Eva's parents were forced to send their children into hiding, but she and her sister Marta could not avoid capture. In this remarkable memoir, Eva recounts her experiences at the Auschwitz - Birkenau concentration camp. There, she witnessed countless horrors and was herself subjected to torture, extreme deprivation, and medical experimentation at the hands of the notorious Dr Josef Mengele. When the Soviet army liberated the survivors of Auschwitz early in 1945, Eva and Marta faced a new challenge: crossing war - torn Europe to be reunited with their family. Narrated with the heartbreaking innocence of a young girl and the wisdom of a woman of eighty - three, Gazing at the Stars is a record of survival in the face of unimaginable evil. It is the culmination of Eva Slonim's lifelong commitment to educating the world about the Holocaust, and to keeping alive the memory of the many who perished.
