Phyllis Shaw is a 2nd generation survivor. Both her mother and father were survivors. She tells the story of her mother, Regina, who as a teenager was deported to first a crowded ghetto near her home town in Romania and then transported to the Auschwitz concentration camp. From there, she miraculously found two of her 9 sisters. The three did everything in their power to survive. From Auschwitz, to another working camp, to Bergen Belsen, to a displaced persons home in Sweden, and finally to America. Phyllis charts her mother’s journey. It is one of resilience and gratitude despite everything that she went through.
