Rena’s Promise stands alone among Holocaust memoirs for its historical importance and NOW REVEALS remarkable NEW INFORMATION about the First Women in Auschwitz*:

  • How the Slovakian government sold these girls for slave labor to the Third Reich;
  • How parents believed their daughters were going to a government work camp;
  • How many of the girls and women died in the first six months (50 were teenagers);
  • The names of every girl and woman on the first transport and their ages;
  • Incredible previously untold stories of some who survived and some who did not.

Talking Points:

  • Why do so few people know that the First Jewish Transport to Auschwitz was made up entirely of girls and women?
  • Why was the First Jewish Transport to Auschwitz comprised solely of young women?
  • What are the positive messages we can learn from these young women that will give their lives meaning?
  • What can Holocaust History teach us about the issues women face from extremists and fanatic militants today?
