In 1942 Franci Epstein, a young Jewish woman, was imprisoned in Terezin, a concentration camp close to her home in Prague.

Few could expect anything other than death. But for Franci it was the start of a journey that would take her into the very heart of Nazi genocide.

Through a combination of guile, ingenuity, endurance and sheer bloody mindedness, Franci survived not one but five death camps, including Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen.

In this astonishing memoir, unpublished for 50 years, Franci lays bare the appalling sacrifices she and other women had to make to survive.

It is a story of hope in the face of suffering; of one woman's determination to live.
