A Delayed Life: The True Story of the Librarian of Auschwitz
Hardcover | 352 pages
This breathtaking memoir tells the story of Dita Kraus, a Holocaust survivor and the real-life Librarian of Auschwitz.
Dita Kraus grew up in Prague in an intellectual, middle-class, Jewish family. She went to school, made Czech and German friends, and never understood herself as different—until the advent of the Holocaust. Torn from her home, Dita was sent to Auschwitz with her family.
From her time in the Children's Block of Auschwitz to her liberation from the camps and on into her adulthood, Dita's powerful memoir sheds light on an incredible life—one that is delayed no longer.
