Among the millions of Holocaust victims sent to Auschwitz II-Birkenau in 1944, Priska, Rachel, and Anka each pass through its infamous gates with a secret. Strangers to one another, they are newly pregnant, and facing an uncertain fate without their husbands. Alone, scared, and with so many loved ones already lost to the Nazis, these young women are privately determined to hold on to all they have left: their lives and those of their unborn babies. That the gas chambers ran out of Zyklon B just after the babies were born, before they and their mothers could be exterminated, is just one of several miracles that allowed them all to survive and rebuild their lives after World War II. Born Survivors follows the mothers' incredible journey--first to Auschwitz, where they each came under the murderous scrutiny of Dr. Josef Mengele; then to a German slave-labor camp, where, half-starved and almost worked to death, they struggled to conceal their condition; and, finally, as the Allies closed in, their hellish seventeen-day train journey with thousands of other prisoners to the Mauthausen death camp in Austria. Biographer Wendy Holden details the courage and kindness of strangers, including guards and civilians, which helped save these women and their children. Sixty-five years later, the three "miracle babies" meet for the first time at Mauthausen for the anniversary of the American liberation. United by their remarkable experiences of survival against all odds, they come to consider each other "siblings of the heart." In Born Survivors, Holden brings all three stories together for the first time, to mark their seventieth birthdays and the seventieth anniversary of the ending of the war. A heart-stopping account of how three mothers and their newborns fought to survive the Holocaust, Born Survivors is also a life-affirming celebration of our capacity to care and love amid inconceivable cruelty.… (mais)

Well... Wow... Hard to evaluate... The women's stories were good but the meshing of those stories didn't work and ended up kinda repeating chunks of the stories. Would have been better as the separate works - it just felt forced to try to mesh items that didn't fit together easily... And was really difficult to keep clear

Good narrator ( )

The Nazis murdered their husbands but concentration camp prisoners Priska, Rachel, and Anka would not let evil take their unborn children too—a remarkable true story that celebrates three mothers who defied death to give their children life after being imprisoned in Auschwitz - a stunning tale and remarkable story of survival. I was really impressed to learn about how they made out in their lives following the war and how the three daughters who were born in captivity were finally united when they were in their late fifties.

Priska guardò sua figlia, che fino a quel momento era stata nascosta nella sua pancia, relativamente al sicuro. Ora di colpo era fuori - priva di tutto, nuda, vulnerabile - in un mondo dominato dai nazisti. (fonte: Google Books)

Waargebeurde oorlogsmemoir over onvoorwaardelijke moederliefde en de drang om te overleven

Drie zwangere Joodse vrouwen belanden tegen het eind van de Tweede Wereldoorlog in Auschwitz. Priska, Rachel en Anka kunnen zichzelf en hun ongeboren kind alleen tegen de gruwelen van het kamp beschermen door hun zwangerschap te verbergen en door te werken in een wapenfabriek.

Tijdens een massatransport naar Mauthausen waarbij de helft van de gevangenen sterft, bevallen de sterk ondervoede vrouwen zonder van elkaars bestaan op de hoogte te zijn. Dankzij de hulp van medegevangenen en een enkele meelevende bewaker overleven zowel de moeders als hun pasgeboren kinderen de laatste oorlogsdagen.

Na de oorlog beginnen Priska, Rachel en Anka met hun kinderen een nieuw leven in verschillende uithoeken van de wereld. Op de 65e bevrijdingsdag van het concentratiekamp Mauthausen komen de kinderen voor het eerst met elkaar in contact. Wendy Holden, journaliste, biografe en bestsellerauteur, vertelt in De baby's van Mauthausen hun opmerkelijke verhaal voor het eerst.

'Sind Sie schwanger, fresche Frau?' (are you pregnant, pretty woman?) The question directed at Priska Lowenbeinova was accompanied by a smile as her SS inquisitor stood, legs apart, looking her up and down with forensic fascination.
