"A Message of Determination, Perseverance, Faith and Hope," Marion Blumenthal Lazan. Lazan provides a moving firsthand account of the Blumenthal family's life in Germany from the events preceding Kristallnacht to imprisonment in concentration camps, including Bergen-Belsen, to liberation in April 1945.

Marion Blumenthal Lazan was eleven years old when the family finally gained its freedom. She is the coauthor of Four Perfect Pebbles: A Holocaust Story and subject of the PBS documentary Marion's Triumph. Her story is a life-affirming, inspirational narrative of survival, reconciliation and the limits of endurance, and renews one's faith in humanity.
