Reviews

Rena's Promise is written with simplicity and grace. . . . The overwhelming feeling upon finishing is one of triumph: It is still possible to find selflessness and human connection among people living in a place of relentless horror.--Los Angeles Times Book Review

"A poignant and important act of remembrance." --Sir Martin Gilbert, author of The Holocaust: The Human Tragedy "An extraordinary book, vividly written and generously told. You will not easily forget Rena Kornreich and her sister Danka. Nor should you. Harrowing as it often is, this is less a tragedy than a love story. By turns soul-wrenching, inspiring, and heartbreaking, this is a tale that should live long beyond the wonderful woman who inspired it." --Alexandra Fuller, author of Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight "Through her actions during and after the Shoah, Rena Kornreich Gelissen ensured that out of the darkest night, the light of the survivors and their memory remained. Faced with destruction, she and the Jewish people survived." --Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks "Rena's Promise went with us on the Zen Peacemakers' first pilgrimage to Auschwitz in 1996. On our first night together, one of our monks shared a simple message of love from Rena to us. Her message changed our lives." --Peter Matthiessen, author of In Paradise "One of the most accurate accounts, and the only account of the first women's camp in Auschwitz. This is a book historians will refer to for years to come." --Irena Strezlecka, director, Auschwitz Museum of Women, Oswiecim, Poland
