        The identical twins Eva Mozes Kor and Miriam Mozes survived the deadly genetic experiments conducted by The Angel of Death, Josef Mengele, in Auschwitz Their parents, grandparents, two older sisters, uncles, aunts, and cousins were killed The sisters were put through many extremely brutal surgeries and experiments by Mengele, who experimented mainly on twins Eva later recalled I was given five injections That evening I developed extremely high fever I was trembling My arms and my legs were swollen, huge size Mengele and Dr Konig and three other doctors came in the next morning They looked at my fever chart, and Dr Mengele said, laughingly, Too bad, she is so young She has only two weeks to live Eva later told how a set of Gypsy twins was brought back from Mengele s lab after they were sewn back to back Mengele had attempted to create a Siamese twin by connecting blood vessels and organs The twins screamed day and night until gangrene set in, and after three days, they died The fact that Eva and Miriam survived Auschwitz was a miracle in itself, as only few individual twins were still alive at the time the camp was liberated.As adults, Eva and Miriam suffered serious health problems Eva suffered from miscarriages and tuberculosis Her son had cancer Miriam s kidneys never fully developed and she died in 1993 of a rare form of cancer, probably brought on by the unknown medical experiments and injections which she was subjected to at the hands of Josef Mengele.

    1. All or most World  War II books are depressing, but this one especially so for it being 1) true and 2) about 10 year old twin girls in Auschwitz.  It's a very short book but even so it took me over a week to finish it because I had to get myself in the mood for it between readings.  Well, not that I'm ever in the mood for torture, death, and denizens of evil; but I am absolutely hooked on these books about the Nazis for reasons beyond my control and when it's time for the occasional fix, it's [...]


    2. Find all of my reviews at: 52bookminimum/3.5 StarsSurviving the Angel of Death is the true story of Eva Mozes and her twin sister Miriam and the place where they were raised . . . "At Auschwitz dying was so easy. Surviving was a fulltime job. We gave them our blood, our bodies, our pride, our dignity, and in turn, they let us live one more day."Eva and Miriam began their life as normal as you or I . . . They were born to a middle-income family in Romania and were doted on by all for not only bei [...]


    3. I recieved this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.This review is extremely hard to write, just as this book was exceptionally hard to read. I've read dozens of book about holocaust and saw dozens of movies on this topic, but this book had a huge impact on me. Right after first few chapters, I had to put it down just to compose myself. I knew what I was getting myself into, and I've read about Mengele experiments before, but this was very graphic. Eva Mozes Kor is a survivor [...]


    4. I read the first 84 pages in one sitting, then stopped, gasping, to remind myself to breathe. The horrors of Auschwitz weren't the part of this book that most affected me. Instead it was the beginning, in which the Christian villagers slowly turned against Ms. Kor's family, and even her best friend, Luci, joined with the anti-Semites.But the true genius of this book is the powerful epilogue. My words can't do it justice, so here are a few of Ms. Kor's, "Anger and hate are seeds that germinate wa [...]


    5. “If you had five Jews, and you killed three Jews, how many Jews would be left?”This was what the author found in her math class workbook in her early schooldays living under Nazi régime. The early sweetness, living in harmony before the conquest of Nazis and the Condition of them getting worse and the evolving of the anti-Semitism in the village was pretty depressing. Sure I've had read camp experiences of people more than once but not from a perspective of 10 year old twins'. And i was tot [...]


    6. This is the short recitation of the narrator's journey through Auschwitz to forgiveness. I swear I have read a book about her organization, CANDLES, but I cannot locate it on my list. She was only 10 when she and her twin were put through Mengele's experiments. She has little to no memory of what she experienced, what was injected or scanned, but she has a vivid recollection of camp life. This may sound insensitive, but I wish the book has been longer and more detailed.


    7. I was a little worried when I picked up this book. Nazi experiments.drenjust no. But something about it made me want to listen. Its a part of the camps we don't hear much about. And in this case, being a twin and therefore a "wanted prisoner" ultimately saved her life. Saved her, while so nearly killing her as well. Let's just say it bought her time. Time in which to fight for survival. And fight she did.So how does one write a book about Nazi atrocities and make it suitable for YA? Somehow, Eva [...]


    8. I've read a lot of memoirs in the last 10 years written by survivors of the holocaust. Shocking, haunting and enough to make your blood boil, these are unimaginable stories of loss, pain and heartbreak but also inspiring and motivating. Surviving the Angel of Death is one of the few Holocaust books that I've read aimed primarily at a younger audience, but that doesn't make it any less shocking than accounts that are more adult-focused. In fact, being lived through the eyes of 10-year-old Eva is [...]


    9. This book was a quick read, but it was a tough one. It's geared towards young readers, so it's not brutal, but you can read between the lines and what she says is still horrifying. The entire time I was reading this, I was saying to myself, this is doomed to happen again. We are going to repeat this history.So depressing book about the evil people can do to others, including to children. Highly recommended for all to read, and hopefully learn from, so it never happens again. Five stars.


    10. Doporučím asi spíš někomu, kdo ještě žádnou podobnou literaturu nečetl. Výpověď jednoho z Mengeleových dvojčat je sice děsivá, smutná i dojemná (jako asi všechny případy přežití koncentračního tábora), ale musím přiznat, že například Utekl jsem z Osvětimi mě oslovilo víc.


    11. Almost from the moment 10 year old twins Eva and Miriam Mozes stepped out of the cattle car that brought them to Auschwitz, they were separated from their mother, father, and older sisters, never to see them again. Eva comments over and over on the constant smell that permeated Auschwitz from the gas chambers, but even as she instinctively knows that this is the fateful death that the rest of her family had immediately met, she continues to hope they could somehow survive.The girls were put into [...]


    12. Masakr!! Je neskutecne, co dokazi desetilete deti, kdyz jin jde o zivot. Pud sebezachovy je silny a neskutecny! Tohle je kniha, kterou by si mel kazdy precist. A povinne. Je psana jednoduchou formou, rychle se cte, protoze Eva nic neprotahuje. Jde rovnou k veci. Na konci fotky, originalni, u kterych se mi misty zastavoval dech. Perfektne zpracovane.


    13. I recieved this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.This book is phenomenal. I actually put off reading this book a couple of times, mainly because I wasn't really in the mood for depressing subjects. Which was a pretty big mistake because while this is a memoir of an Auschwitz survivor, it is one of the most uplifting and inspirational books I've read in quite a while. Eva Moses Kor along with her twin sister, witnessed true evil, barely managing to make it out alive. They w [...]


    14. I'd like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for providing me with a digital copy of this book! Wow. I read this book in one sitting. This book is both mesmerising and hard-hitting. Mrs. Kor manages to tell us of her and her sisters horrific experiences in a way that is easy to read for those who aren't educated on what was happening at the time. I am unbelievably saddened by the injustices and cruelty which she and the other prisoners experienced. I thank her for sharing this story of her brav [...]


    15. Surviving the Angel of Death was a well chronicled and detailed recount of Eva Mozes and her sister Miriam's year and a half spent in Auschwitz. Being twins and part of Dr. Mengele's experiments gave them "special privileges" to keep them alive until their release from the gates of the death camp. Just 10 years old at the time, Eva tells her story in first person and in a somewhat simplistic fashion hoping that young people would read and understand their story. As a young girl she couldn't unde [...]


    16. This is written a little on the young side so I'm assuming it's meant for young adult readers, but you know what? Young adult readers need to learn about Holocaust stories too, and when confronted by big books with lots of horrifying facts, the task is super daunting. But Eva Mozes Kor brings her personal story to life for younger readers here in a way that isn't exactly RELATABLE, but in a way, it kind of is. You see Eva as more than just a victim of Auschwitz and Mengele but rather as a girl o [...]


    17. This is a story I am satisfied was told. There is by no means anything satisfying about a diabolically, immoral mad doctor performing deadly experiments on Jewish prisoners during the Holocaust, but it is satisfying that a survivor has stepped forward to tell her story as to what happened. I read Elie Wiesel's "Night" a few months ago and realized that there was a very similar structure: the Jewish people lost respect from others and their rights bit by bit, taken from their homes to secluded co [...]


    18. I like the way this book is written in the first person, through the eyes of Eva, as a ten year old. It provides an insight into the torment of those tortured young people. It is a fitting record of what must be one of the worst acts of genocide.Although this is a short volume, it certainly packs a punch. During the early pages, the way the twins and their parents had so much trust. "Are they twins?" he asked Mama. She hesitated. "Is that good?" "Yes", said the guard. "They are tins," replied Ma [...]


    19. This is one of those books that you read and feel so infinitely petty and humbled afterwards; that books like these should be a part of everyone's daily reading. We have it good.Perhaps too good. May we always remember those who have not, and do not have it, as good as we do. So many people have sacrificed so much to allow us to be as free, and as blessed as we are today.


    20. Wow. Tohle byla celkem síla. Přečteno v jednom sezení, slza uroněna. Pořád tak nějak nechápu, jak to mohlo těm lidem procházet. Snad už se něco takového nikdy nestane. Must read pro všechny, kterým to není jedno. I když je to už za námi.Recenzi si můžete přečíst tadyk. blog.jsemdita/hrozivy-pribe


    21. I firmly believe that we should never forget what happened to innocent people including children during the Holocaust so whenever I see a book written by a survivor of the Holocaust, I always read it. It is sometimes very difficult to read about the suffering of people and their loved ones but I feel that I owe it to them to listen to their story.Eva Mozes Kor, and her twin sister Miriam were only 10 years old when they were taken to Auschwitz with their family and quickly separated from them on [...]


    22. Ich klammerte mich an Mamas Hand. Ein SS-Mann rannte vor uns entlang. Er rief auf Deutsch: „Zwillinge! Zwillinge!“ Er stürzte vorbei, blieb dann stehen, kehrte auf dem Absatz um und kam dann zurück. Er baute sich vor uns auf. Seine Augen wanderten zwischen Miriams und meinem Gesicht hin und her und musterten unsere gleich geschnittenen weinroten Kleider. „Sind das Zwillinge?“, fragte er Mama. Sie zögerte. „Ist das gut?“ „Ja.“, sagte der Wachmann. „Sie sind Zwillinge“, antw [...]


    23. Following twins Eva & Miriam this young adult non-fiction details the child hood of the two children through Auschwitz and there encounters with 'The Angel of Death'.I found the whole story to be utterly moving and completely inspirational.It was so gripping and equally as horrifying.It gives a great accounts of Auschwitz and the grotesque medical experiments the poor girls were forced to endure,The overall message of the book had an incredible effect on me and although shockingly brutal and [...]


    24. Surviving the Angel of Death: The Story of a Mengele Twin in Auschwitz is definitely a must read. It is horrifying what the author and her identical twin went through in Auschwitz. The book is short and easy to read (though the contents were hard to read at times).  I highly highly recommend this book. 100 stars


    25. I believe this book is intended for children or teenagers as it introduces the reader to Holocaust terms and realities in a more subtle and simple way. I was personally looking for a book that describes Mengele's practices in great detail and depth, however it is great as an introductory book for young people.


    26. ďalšia kniha, ktorá je dokladom ľudskej sile prežiť. sile a odvahe dieťaťa vzoprieť sa a prežiť. každá jedná z kníh s touto tématikou ma dostane a ja len skláňam klobúk pred ľuďmi, ktorí to prežili ale aj pred tými, ktorí nie. bo to čo sa dialo v tej dobe sa inak ako zverstvom nedá nazvať.


    27. A good short read. I believe it was written for a younger audience, but is still interesting. It provides a good brief description of life in the camps and beyond.



    28. I'm not sure what would make a book like this a five star one for me. Strange to think something like, "I really liked it." It's a book about atrocities. It's also a book of survival and hope, love, forgiveness. This is a book for teens, not an adult book and I think I'm perfectly fine with that. An adult book might have details that are too haunting, graphic, intense. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to know about the holocaust, about Jewish history, Jews, WWII, Russia, Nazis, etc.


    29. Surviving the Angel of Death became a favourite book of mine the minute I began reading. Most of the historical memoirs I’ve read are lengthy, require background knowledge and overwrought. Surviving the Angel of Death is written in a simple, beautiful manner (I don’t believe I had to look up a single book in a dictionary; a vast contrast to most other books) and only focuses on the facts with small emotive icons. The other thing I loved was how informative the book was, and somebody with lit [...]
