Preview

A review of the book, Doors to Madame Marie by Odette Meyers is presented. The book is a personal chronicle of survival, both physical and moral. Not unlike The Diary of Anne Frank in its depiction of a single family's fate during the Holocaust, it has a totally different focus — the continuation of life through and after the war, and the costs of survival.

Keywords: Odette Meyers; Jews; Holocaust; survival
