Joseph, Yolanda Klein. I Remember: A Holocaust Survivor’s Story. 2001.

I Remember is the story of a teen-aged girl from a small town in Czechoslovakia, a member of one of the two Jewish families in the town. Yolanda tells of her experiences as the Germans advanced, of both families being loaded onto a train and initially taken to the Ungvar ghetto. Yolanda, a very clever young woman, writes of how she was able to obtain food for many of the people there. From Ungvar, she was taken to Auschwitz-Birkenau. She was one of the few who survived various forced marches to Nazi labor camps. In January 1945 she was liberated by the Russian army and was able to make her way back to her home town.
