Even in hell, hope can flower.

‘I’ll be forever changed by her story’ – Oprah Winfrey

‘Extraordinary … will stick with you long after you read it’ – Bill Gates

‘One of those rare and eternal stories you don’t want to end’ – Desmond Tutu

‘A masterpiece of holocaust literature. Her memoir, like her life, is extraordinary, harrowing and inspiring in equal measure’ – The Times Literary Supplement

‘I can’t imagine a more important message for modern times. Eger’s book is a triumph’ – The New York Times

In 1944, sixteen-year-old ballerina Edith Eger was sent to Auschwitz. Separated from her parents on arrival, she endures unimaginable experiences, including being made to dance for the infamous Josef Mengele. When the camp is finally liberated, she is pulled from a pile of bodies, barely alive.

The horrors of the Holocaust didn’t break Edith. In fact, they helped her learn to live again with a life-affirming strength and a truly remarkable resilience. The Choice is her unforgettable story.

It shows that hope can flower in the most unlikely places.
