This program includes exclusive archival audio.
From Heather Morris, the New York Times bestselling author of the multi-million copy bestseller The Tattooist of Auschwitz and Cilka's Journey: a story of family, courage, and resilience, inspired by a true story.
Against all odds, three Slovakian sisters have survived years of imprisonment in the most notorious death camp in Nazi Germany: Auschwitz. Livia, Magda, and Cibi have clung together, nearly died from starvation and overwork, and the brutal whims of the guards in this place of horror. But now, the allies are closing in and the sisters have one last hurdle to face: the death march from Auschwitz, as the Nazis try to erase any evidence of the prisoners held there. Due to a last minute stroke of luck, the three of them are able to escape formation and hide in the woods for days before being rescued.
And this is where the story begins. From there, the three sisters travel to Israel, to their new home, but the battle for freedom takes on new forms. Livia, Magda, and Cibi must face the ghosts of their past--and some secrets that they have kept from each other--to find true peace and happiness.
Inspired by a true story, and with events that overlap with those of Lale, Gita, and Cilka, The Three Sisters will hold a place in listeners' hearts and minds as they experience what true courage really is.
A Macmillan Audio production from St. Martin's Press.

Told in Three parts: The Promise, The Gates of Hell and The Promised Land the three sisters tell of their life and times from teenagers to great-grandmothers. I can’t remember crying this much while reading one book. So poignant and haunting that I am confident I shall remember this book forever. Slovakian, Jewish sisters Magda and Livi recount to the author Heather Morris what they endured and the impact their experiences had on their lives. The Meller mantra: strength and hope, which is how the girls survived! The essence of the book: Cibi tells her sisters, “We are all survivors. We have all been beaten, starved and tortured, but look at us, we’re still moving, still alive.” Their survival was their justice and retribution toward the Nazis.
If you would like to read about true events during a tumultuous period of our history, read and enjoy this book. I was invited and I volunteered to review an ARC of this book through NetGalley. I would give it 10 stars if I could.
"When they put these numbers into our skin, they sealed our promise. Somehow they gave us the strength to fight for our lives."
This is the true story of 3 sisters. The girls Cibi, Magda and Livi made a promise to their father that they will always protect one another and stay together before he died.
Can they keep that promise during WWII as Jews are being round up and taken to camps. The sisters are taken to Auschwitz-Birkenau.
This was a heart breaking, tragic story that was beautifully told.
An emotional read, with events in history that need to be told many times and remembered so this will never happen again.
Thank you NetGalley and St. Martin's Press for the opportunity to read this book. A story I will never forget.
These three women are probably more than most of us could ever hope to be and I am so thankful Heather Morris told their story. Her research, detail and perfect story telling will snag you from the start.
I really hope there is another World War II book in this author’s future!
While reading this book it was very hard for me to imagine how they survived.
The cold and hunger must have been unbearable.
Their living quarters were a nightmare.
After reading this book I thank God I have such a comfortable life.
ng their living quarters.
I kept thinking while reading , I am truly spoiled
Special thanks to the survivors and their children for sharing your lives. Never Forget…
Heather Morris and Company, Well Done!

These stories have to be read and shared. The holocaust must never be forgotten the cruelty and torture man can do to man simply because of there faith must be faced and taught to others. This book shows how strong love and the will to live really is. An amazing book by an amazing author about three amazing sisters. Read this book and tell everyone you know about it for we must never forget.
Thank you to Netgalley and the publishers for the eARC.
