Andra (b. 1939) and Tatiana Bucci (b. 1937) were born in Fiume, the daughters of a Catholic father and Jewish mother. They were deported to Auschwitz along with their mother, grandmother, aunt and a cousin. When the camp was liberated in 1945 they were sent first to Czechoslovakia and later to the UK where their parents finally tracked them down. They were reunited with their parents in 1946. Today, they bear witness in schools and at the camps.
"Andra and Tatiana Bucci's riveting memoir reveals the
extraordinary courage of two little girls; their will to live, and
the profound love of their mother, who was determined to keep them
alive. Always Remember Your Name is heart-breaking and yet
utterly uplifting, with the fierce bond of two sisters at its
heart, who survived the Holocaust to bear witness, so that none of
us will ever forget."
-Heather Morris, international bestselling author of The Tattooist of Auschwitz, Cilka's Journey, and Three Sisters
