Reviews

"Born Survivors, is exceptionally fresh history, a work of prodigious original research, written with zealous empathy."--Women in the World, New York Times online
"An astonishing and deeply moving work.... With remarkable detail gleaned from a wealth of research."--Booklist (starred review)
"Even though it occurred more than 70 years ago, the story's truth is so chillingly portrayed that it seems as if it could have happened recently.... An engrossing, intense, and highly descriptive narrative chronicling the ghastly conditions three pregnant women suffered through at the hands of the Nazis."--Kirkus Reviews
"Holden weaves...written, oral and recorded accounts, plus an array of historical records, into a spellbinding story of perseverance amid systematic abuse."--American Jewish World
"Holden's triple biography is packed with enough contextual information to qualify as a history lesson but makes its impression as a tale of undeniable courage and astonishing love in the face of incredible cruelty and evil."--Contra Costa Times
"It's no surprise Born Survivors is gathering excellent reviews."--Chicago Tribune
"Packed with harrowing detail and impressively well-researched.... Intense, powerful, and moving, more than make up for this. Born Survivors is a worthy testament to these three women and the miraculous survival of their children."--Jewish Chronicle
