Being taken away to a new place of endless torcher and never knowing when the nightmare will be over. Constantly, being demand by SS guards and feeling powerless. The saddest part, is when, she is taken from her brother and father, never knowing when she will see them again.

It was pitch black and very cold when our first day in Auschwitz began”, this was start of her abominable life. Overall the book is very interesting and makes you want to keep reading. Every chapter informs you with details, facts, and experiences. “March to Freedom”, takes you through Edith’s survival of the Holocaust. This memoir
