Sharing Is Healing:
A Holocaust Survivor’s Story

Noémi Ban’s story of the loss of her mother, grandmother, thirteen year-old sister and 6 month-old baby brother and of the suffering she survived while in Auschwitz-Birkenau is tragic, however, the message of this award-winning teacher’s new book is one of tolerance hope and love of life.

Several themes pervade each chapter: the importance of perseverance, determination, friendship, responsibility and freedom; the dangers of bigotry, hatred and teasing; and as the title implies, the value of family, friends, trust and sharing in healing from a great loss.  The final two chapters include narrative and photos from Mrs. Ban’s return to Auschwitz in 1995 and 1997, as well as suggestions to readers as to lessons that may be learned from this period of history.

Easy to Read Format Makes this Difficult Subject Accessible to All Readers

Understanding what happened during the Holocaust is a challenge to any human being.  Believing that any person, young or old, should be able to read and understand the messages of her story, Noémi Ban writes in language that any reader, with fifth grade or higher reading skills, should be able to understand.
