Escape to Life: A Journey Through the Holocaust - The Memories of Maria and William Herskovic

Patricia Herskovic


Caught in the crossfire of Nazi oppression, two people triumph in this story of courage, luck and passion during one of the darkest moments of the 20th Century. After surviving a perilous escape from Auschwitz’s infamous death camps, William Herskovic miraculously made his way across Nazi-occupied Europe. One of the first recorded eyewitnesses of Hitler’s atrocities, Herskovic alerted the underground, and was eventually credited with the rescue of thousands, bound for the gas chambers. Mireille, still merely a teen, managed to hide her parents in attics and rural homes, risking her life daily to venture out for the food to keep them alive. The Herskovic family survived the perils of the Holocaust with their souls and spirits soaring. “Memoirs of Maria and William Herskovic, who escaped from Auschwitz and transmitted some of the first information on what was going on in the camps.” [Ha’aretz]
