Lucille Eichengreen reads from From Ashes to Life
In From Ashes to Life, Lucille Eichengreen relates her journey as a young Jewish girl through Nazi Germany and Poland, including internment in the camps at Auschwitz, Neuengamme, and Bergen-Belsen. Born in Hamburg, her story begins in 1933, when she was eight years old and witnessed the beginnings of Jewish persecution. Sustained by great courage, Lucille emerged from her nightmare with the inner strength to build a new life for herself in the United States.
