Summary

A powerful and intensely moving true-life account from two sisters who were among the very few children to survive Auschwitz.

On 28th March 1944, Italian sisters Tati (six) and Andra (four) were roused from their sleep and taken to Auschwitz, to the infamous Kinder Block presided over by Josef Mengele, the Angel of Death. By the time Auschwitz was liberated, 230,000 children had been murdered, and the sisters were among only 70 child survivors.

Throughout their ordeal in the camp and the liberation of Auschwitz, their long journey from Poland to Czechoslovakia and finally to Lingfield House in Britain, they hung on to their promise to their mother to 'always remember your name'. They never forgot they were Tati and Andra Bucci, and it was this connection to their heritage that brought them miraculously back to their parents, years later and many countries away. The sisters overcame their trauma to live long lives, bearing witness as survivors of the Holocaust.

Always Remember Your Name is an unforgettable story of the power of sisterhood, and of how a mother's love triumphed over impossible odds.

Critic reviews

"Always Remember Your Name is heart-breaking and yet utterly uplifting, with the fierce bond of two sisters at its heart, who survived the Holocaust to bear witness, so that none of us will ever forget." (Heather Morris, international best-selling author of The Tattooist of Auschwitz)

A must read book

Always find accounts of holocaust stories fascinating, sad but essential to the memory of the victims.
Shame the narrator didn’t research how to pronounce some of the words properly!! I found that unprofessional.
