In Debrecen, Hungary, Judy grows up in a warm and lively family, but when the Nazis invade in 1944, she is crowded into a ghetto, her life now shaped by fear and hopelessness. When the cattle cars take Judy and her family to Auschwitz-Birkenau, she truly leaves her precious childhood behind as she scrambles to survive in the shadow of the gas chambers, one brutal day at a time. Judy survives by clinging to her sisters, to friends, and to fleeting life-affirming moments, and once she creates a new life for herself in Canada, she makes it her mission to give a voice both to women who were murdered in the Holocaust and to those who survived.
