"On March 6, 1944, about two thousand orphans were rescued from Romanian concentration camps in Transnistria-Ukraine. I was one of them". So begins Ruth Gold's memoir, a story that illuminates and transcends survival. In 1941, eleven-year-old Ruth had become a helpless witness to the agonizing death of her father, then of her only brother, and finally of her mother - all within three weeks. They perished in Bershad, the largest and most famous of more than 100 concentration camps in Transnistria. Following her rescue, Ruth's journey took her to Cyprus, Israel, Colombia, the United States, and finally back to visit her hometown, Czernowitz, and the camp at Bershad. Combining historical events with an intensely personal narrative of her life before, during and after the Holocaust, Ruth Gold has created a memorial to the Jews of Transnistria. Moreover, the courageous spirit of her life, despite her shattering psychological and physical traumas, conveys a message to those who contemplate meaning in the Holocaust.
