When I Fall, I Shall Rise: A Holocaust Survivor Memoir
Author: Dan Shtauber
Format: Kindle Edition
It all began in 1944 when the Germans occupied Hungary.
This is when Risa Shtauber’s life turned from an ordinary life to one of surviving unspeakable horrors.
Risa was shipped together with many other Jews to the Oradea Ghetto and from there to the Plaszow Labor Camp and later to the Ober-Altstadt Labor camp. And even this was not enough… Risa was sent to the Auschwitz Death Camp to be slaughtered!
But, she survived!
Having survived, she met her husband – Mordechai Tzvi and they created a family which included 4 sons, 22 grandkids and 34 great-grandkids!
Had anyone told Risa Shtauber during 1944-1945 that she would celebrate her 90th birthday in Israel surrounded by her sons, grandkids and great-grandkids, she would tell them to stop fantasizing.
But in 2016, this came to be!
And today, at the age of 94 and living her life in Israel, she still feels victorious when remembering those horrible years!
