In Debrecen, Hungary, Judy grows up in a warm and lively family, but when the Nazis invade in 1944, she is crowded into a ghetto with the other Jews in the area, her life now shaped by fear and hopelessness. When the cattle cars take Judy and her family to Auschwitz-Birkenau, she truly leaves her precious childhood behind as she scrambles to survive in the shadow of the gas chambers, one brutal day at a time. Clinging to her sisters, to friends, and to fleeting life-affirming moments, Judy survives the camps and a death march on ?a never-ending road paved with utter, unadulterated misery.? Liberated at last, she returns home, only to discover the true magnitude of her loss. Judy then sets out to answer the question of how to find belonging and meaning after so much devastation, creating a new life for herself in Canada and making it her mission to give a voice to women who survived the Holocaust.

Judy Weissenberg Cohen was born in Debrecen, Hungary, on September 17, 1928. After the war, she lived in the Bergen-Belsen displaced persons camp in Germany. She immigrated to Montreal in 1948, where she first worked in the garment industry, and then in an office and in public relations. She married her husband, Sidney, in 1961 and raised two children. Judy is an active speaker and Holocaust and human rights educator, and in 2001 she founded the website ?Women and the Holocaust,? which collects testimony, literature and scholarly material exploring the unique experiences of women in the Holocaust. Judy Cohen lives in Toronto.
