Fragments of Isabella: A Memoir of Auschwitz

By Isabella Leitner
Crowell, 1978
120 pp. $7.95

As a young woman, Isabella Leitner was deported from Hungary to Auschwitz; the Nazis murdered her mother and one sister, but by unimaginable fortitude and will to survive she and her three other sisters dodged death. Her recollections make a sparse and searing book, fragments of remembered feelings and occurrences that evoke perhaps better than most works something unfathomable.
