An expanded edition of the powerful memoir about two sisters' determination to survive during the Holocaust featuring new and never before revealed information about the first transport of women to Auschwitz

Sent to Auschwitz on the first Jewish transport, Rena Kornreich survived the Nazi death camps for over three years. While there she was reunited with her sister Danka. Each day became a struggle to fulfill the promise Rena made to her mother when the family was forced to split apart--a promise to take care of her sister.

One of the few Holocaust memoirs about the lives of women in the camps, Rena's Promise is a compelling story of the fleeting human connections that fostered determination and made survival a possibility. From the bonds between mothers, daughters, and sisters, to the links between prisoners, and even prisoners and guards, Rena's Promise reminds us of the humanity and hope that survives inordinate inhumanity.

I went to Auschwitz a few years ago and couldn't believe what I saw and heard. I wanted to read a book from a girls perspective to really get an idea of what people were put through. This book is very well written. You feel and see everything through Rena's eyes. It is incredible that she had so much strength for her and her sister to survive this horrid experience. I am grateful that this book along with all the others that share these memories were written as it ensures that they and all those that died will be remembered forever. I truly recommend this book. You will not regret it.
