							On the morning of Isabella’s birthday in 1944, she and her family were deported to Auschwitz, the Nazi extermination camp.  There she and her siblings fought the greatest evil in human history with the only weapon they had: love.  Isabella’s Pulitzer-nominated memoir will take you into a world of darkness where she will reveal a humanity described in the voice of a poet.
