About the Author
Eva Miriam is the pen name of Eva Bunzel, born outside Prague and a medical student when captured by the Nazis and shipped to Auschwitz. Selected as fit to work, she survived the war as a slave laborer and after the war married Rudolf Bunzel. They defected from Communist Czechoslovakia after the war and their son Tom was born; in 1980 Eva and Rudolf retired to La Jolla, where these memoirs were written on an electric typewriter. Thanks to modern technology including document scanning and the Internet, her work is available for all to read and learn from. Her main lesson is that the Holocaust was not about the Jews, but about all dissidents, and that freedom is the most precious commodity we have, and it must be safeguarded at all costs.
