About this title

Synopsis:

The author shares her experiences as an eleven-year-old during the holocaust, detailing life in a concentration camp, rescue failures, and freedom in Palestine, and brings an adult perspective to the events that changed her young life

About the Author:

Ruth Glasberg Gold was born in Bukovina, Romania (now Ukraine) and deported at eleven to a concentration camp in Transnistria where her parents and only brother perished. After the war she joined a Zionist youth commune, and escaped from communist Romania on a freighter, shipwrecked off a Greek Island. Rescued by the British, she was taken to a detention camp on Cyprus. A year later she was freed. With her commune, she helped create a new kibbutz in the Judean Hills near Jerusalem, and later entered Jerusalem's Hadassah Nursing School, graduating as an RN. In 1954 Ruth became head-nurse at Elisha Hospital, then supervisor at Rambam Hospital, both in Haifa. In 1958 she married and relocated to Bogota, Colombia, where her son and daughter were born. In 1972 the family emigrated to Miami. She was widowed in 1982. Ruth was a participant in The International Study of Organized Persecution of Children; co-founded WIZO (Women's International Organization) in the USA, founded the first Child Survivors of the Holocaust support group in Florida, and is a frequent speaker on the Holocaust. She is a freelance interpreter in seven languages. On January 27, 2009 Ruth was a guest speaker at the United Nations' International Day of Commemoration of the Holocaust. Ruth's Journey: A Survivor's Memoir, is her first book. In 2000 it was translated into Hebrew and published in Israel by the Holocaust Martyr's and Heroes" Remembrance Authority. In 2003 the book was published in Romania by Editura Hasefer and in 2008 in Spanish by Editorial Font in Mexico. The German translation was published in 2009 by Edition Steinbauer GmbH in Vienna.
