    A Memoir in the Flesh - Adèle Grossman

    Éditions Le Manuscrit / Fondation pour la Mémoire de la Shoah - 2007

    This book tells the tragic story of Adèle Grossman, a young Polish Jew from the region of Lodz. Having lost most of her family, she found herself alone in Auschwitz, in Birkenau and then in the Stutthof camp. Left for dead at the time of the evacuation, she had to undergo amputation of both her legs, frozen during the "death march". Despite all her physical suffering, despite the unspeakable pain of losing her close relatives, Adèle maintained an inner strength to the continue to live and to found a family.

    This sober and gripping account is that of an extraordinary woman forever marked by the Nazi barbarity, a woman who nonetheless remained optimistic, with an unbreakable faith in humanity.
