Livia Bitton-Jackson is an author and a Holocaust survivor. She was 13 years old when she, her mother, father, aunt and brother Bubi, were taken to Ghetto Nagymagyar. Eventually, they were transported to Auschwitz, the largest German concentration camp, where her brother and aunt were separated from Livia and her mother. Her aunt perished but her brother survived. She, her mother and brother were liberated in 1945. Bitton-Jackson came to the U.S. on a refugee boat in 1951 to join Bubi, who was studying in New York. She then studied at New York University, from which she received a Ph.D. in Hebrew Culture and Jewish History. She also wrote her 1997 memoir I Have Lived a Thousand Years. (From Wikipedia)

“My hope is that learning about past evils will help us to avoid them in the future.”
Livia Bitton-Jackson, I Have Lived a Thousand Years

“My stories are of gas chambers, shootings, electrified fences, torture, scorching sun, mental abuse, and constant threat of death.
But they are also stories of faith, hope, triumph, and love. They are stories of perseverance, loyalty, courage in the face of overwhelming odds, and of never giving up!”
Livia Bitton-Jackson, I Have Lived a Thousand Years

“What is death all about? What is life all about?”
Livia Bitton-Jackson, I Have Lived a Thousand Years
