When twins Eva and Miriam Mozes were ten years old, the Nazis invaded their home in Romania and forced their family onto a train that would take them to the Auschwitz concentration camp.
When they got off the train, their family became separated. They never knew what happened to their father and two older sisters, Aliz and Edit. Their mother, in a desperate attempt to save her youngest daughters, answered "Is that good?" after a soldier asked if they were twins.
"Good" was a subjective concept, because Eva and Miriam were immediately torn from their mother's arms, and she was sent to the gas chamber while they were taken to the laboratory barracks for those who would become Dr. Joseph Mengele's experiments. This book is the story of how they survived the horrors that ensued.
Adapted from Eva Mozes Kor's self-published memoir, ECHOES FROM AUSCHWITZ: DR. MENGELE'S TWINS, THE STORY OF EVA AND MIRIAM MOZES, this book gives a heartbreaking view into two Jewish children's lives during the Holocaust. Though the subject matter is graphic and sensitive, Eva Mozes Kor's breathtaking ability to forgive Joseph Mengele for his atrocities, as well as her ability to overcome unimaginable cruelties, provide hope for all children who have gone through terrible experiences.
Keep a box of tissues at hand, because this book is one of the most challenging emotional roller coasters I have ever read. Definitely worth reading for people of all ages.

Eva and Miriam are 10 year old identical twins from a jewish family in Romania when the Nazi’s took them to Auschwitz. Separated from their parents and older siblings, the twins are sent to Dr Mengele to be subjected to several horrific and unimaginable medical experiments.
Eva’s young voice whilst narrating her story has such strength that it’s incredulous to the reader where she gets her courage and determination from. Her desire to live and survive is so inspiring and when you finish the book and then read the epilogue following Eva’s journey you soon realise that Eva was an incredibly selfless, strong and brave human being and I hope that the younger generation listen and follow her wise words.

When you read stories like Eva’s, however, it really puts our restrictions into perspective. We still have our freedom and choices. We still have chocolate!! Most importantly, we still have our lives as the government has done everything to ensure that we do. Many people may think what they have been doing is wrong, but when we look at the Holocaust, that was wrong!
Eva’s story, like all that come out of Auschwitz, is truly harrowing. That she came out as strong as she did is a miracle. As many reviews have said, the book is quite simply written. It doesn’t embellish a lot, and it doesn’t belabour events or feelings and emotions. The book doesn’t drag on; we are swept through the horrific experiences at great speed as if the writer herself couldn’t linger for too long. I longed for a little more dialogue between Eva and her twin Miriam even if it were just to give one another comfort. Does the lack of this in the book mean that it didn’t happen? In other Auschwitz books I have read, friendships of sorts have been made between people in the same dorms. However, this seemed to be missing in the twins’ room. It was such a shame to read that 10-year olds had to isolate themselves in such a mental state to survive and not be able to rely on others to help them get through the ordeal.
I read the book from cover to cover, wanting to know every little detail the author could offer on Eva Mozes Kor as she really was a fascinating woman and sounded like a force of nature. I feel privileged to have been able to read her story!
A book of greatest importance,of everything a young child,or anyone should never experience.The loss of everything,and through every darkness she experienced,she spoke of a forgiveness,that enabled her to teaching young and old,of a tragedy never to happen again.
