A Cry in Unison by Judy Cohen
The Azrieli Series of Holocaust Survivor Memoirs
Judy’s joyful childhood in Debrecen, Hungary, is left behind when the Nazis invade in 1944. The cattle cars take Judy and her family to Auschwitz-Birkenau, where she has to scramble to survive, one brutal day at a time. Clinging to her sisters, to friends, and to fleeting life-affirming moments, Judy is liberated at last and returns home, only to discover the true magnitude of her loss. She then sets out to find belonging after so much devastation, creating a new life for herself and making it her mission to give a voice to women who survived the Holocaust.
