The deeply moving true account of a young Jewish woman’s imprisonment by the Nazis at the Auschwitz death camp. In 1944, on the morning of Isabella’s birthday, she and her family were deported to Auschwitz, the Nazi extermination camp. There, Isabella and her siblings relied on one another’s love and support to remain hopeful in the midst of the great evil surrounding them. With the voice of a poet, she reveals a humanity in a world of darkness. Thirty years after she escaped from the Nazis, Isabella wrote this powerful and luminous Pulitzer Prize–nominated memoir. Hailed by Publishers Weekly as “a celebration of the strength of the human spirit as it passes through fire,” Fragments of Isabella has become a classic of holocaust literature and human survival.

"Luminous and moving work . . . An invaluable addition to the literature of history's most terrible tragedy . . . A voice not of defeat, but of affirmation." --Gerald Green, author of Holocaust "Soul. That is what this book stands for. Soul. Dostoevsky would have approved of it." --Henry Miller "Profoundly moving . . . Leitner writes with a searing sensitivity that can move one to tears." --Publishers Weekly "Commands immediate nonstop reading. [Leitner] writes sparely, hauntingly, about very specific details--faces, voices, in a way that renders the unbearable real. . . . She breaks my heart open." --Phyllis Chesler, author of Women and Madness "Shatteringly eloquent." --Rabbi Arthur Hertzberg "One of the ever-glowing gems of the Holocaust experience." --Meyer Levin, author of Compulsion "A cry of such agony as I have never heard--all the more telling because of its simplicity and lack of sentimentality. I want the whole world to read it." --Howard Fast, author of The Immigrant's Daughter "Destined to be a classic in the literature of the holocaust . . . A stark tribute not only to the human spirit but to the naked power of words." --The Christian Century "Pain and heroism beyond words." --The Boston Globe "Such poignancy and depth, such a commitment to life and sense of responsibility to the future, that it deserves to be read and taken to heart." --HadassahMagazine "Isabella Leitner has helped to teach a new generation that we must not forget the past. She has done this in a moving and truthful way." --Elizabeth Swados
