This is the story of Tana Stern, of the Chan family, who as a young girl, almost a baby, is broken and abandoned in postwar Europe. It begins with a simple search for the mother who raised Tana during the war. Piece by piece, thread by thread, a partial story of her life comes together over the years. Page after page, Tana's voice is heard telling us her unbelievable story, and we identify with the baby, the little girl and the young woman. She remains optimistic throughout. www.ContentoNow.com We are bound to remember and not to forget! I remember, I remember it all; I raise a prayer in my heart, that my story will inspire hope in your hearts as well... More than anything, I want to send a message to my readers: a message of hope, of determination, of constancy for all those who are still wondering or searching in the dark for their past: never fear to ask questions. Never fear to tell the truth, as awful as it might be; it is better that it be said than hidden as the deepest of secrets... If we but agree to speak up and to speak out, to share and to inquire, we can fill more and more pages which have been empty up until now. We can add to the massive narrative of this period of enormity and horror, and we thus may memorialize our loved ones. But the story is not over. There are two important figures in Tana's life yet to be found: her father Moritz Brunner, whose family and potential offspring she still hopes to find; and her big brother Joseph, who would be in his 90's, perhaps with a family of his own.

How did she survive a childhood locked in a cellar What sort of young woman had emerged What kind of man was Wolfgang Priklopil, her abductor - and what demands had he made of her As the days and weeks passed and Natascha's TV interview failed to quell the curiosity, so the questions began to change.

The terrifying Hammer novella by Minette Walters, bestselling author of The Sculptress and The Scold's Bridle Muna's bedroom is a dark windowless cellar and her activities are confined to cooking and cleaning. She’s grown used to being maltreated by the Songoli family; to being a slave. She’s never been outside, doesn’t know how to read or write, and cannot speak English. At least that’s what the Songolis believe. But Muna is far cleverer - and her plans more terrifying - than the Songolis, or anyone else, can ever imagine ...
One spring morning in the ghetto, my mother, sisters, and I went down the steps into the cellar. Mother was holding a long tube, which she had filled with the few pieces of jewelry she still had from her wedding. She looked at us, her daughters, and removed the earrings I loved so much. She dug a small hole in the ground, wrapped the tube in numerous layers of cloth, placed it in the earth, and we all joined in to cover the hole. "This is so you, my dear daughters, will have something to start with when you return." From her poverty-stricken, yet happy childhood in Hungary, when the author was strongly influenced by her family and community's Zionist ideology, to the hell of Auschwitz and her escape from the Death March in the final days of war, to the tumultuous period in Palestine before the establishment of the State of Israel, Rachel Bernheim-Friedman's life was and is filled with passion, determination, and a strong will to survive and build to build a better life, a Jewish state, and a hopeful future for her children and grandchildren. Continued in Jerusalem, Lebanon, Palestine, the United States and Israel, Earrings in the Cellar is a story that should not be missed."
