Berry Nahmia was born of Jewish parentage in the love Byzantine town Kastoria in the Macedonian province of Greece. In 1944, at eighteen years of age, she was torn from her home by the Nazis and deported along with her parents, brothers, sisters, grandparents, and relatives to the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp.
Upon arrival at the camp she was selected for work as she watched the rest of her family taken to the crematoria and burned. Her experiences in the camp and her miraculous survival there and on the Death March is the story of an incredible determination to survive the horror suffered by more than 6,000,000 Jews of the Holocaust. This story of survival is chronicled in her book, A Cry for Tomorrow, written in Greek and published in Athens in 1989.
Sensitivity translated by David R. Weinberg, Greek scholar and student of the Holocaust, this Greek chronicle has now been made available to the English speaking world.
