Betty Markowitz and Richie Kovacs fell in love as teenagers in Budapest amid the terror and uncertainty of a world at war. They planned their future together, secure in the belief that their love could survive anything, even Hitler. Then, in March 1944, the Germans invaded Hungary.

Here is the moving and dramatic account of one woman's courage in the face of war, and of a love that spanned three decades. From the agony of separation to the horrors of a concentration camp, from her marriage to Otto Schimmel, an Auschwitz survivor who promised her a new life in America, through the joy and struggle of raising a family, Betty never forgot her first love. Then, in 1975, she returned to Budapest and saw someone across a crowded room...

To See You Again is Betty Schimmel's wrenching memoir of survival and sacrifice, of love lost and love found. A true story that unfolds with all the suspense of a novel, it is one that will not soon be forgotten.

Review: To See You Again: A True Story of Love in a Time of War

Nutzerbericht  - Claire G - Goodreads

My favorite love story to date! Amazing how the heart can hold on to love in even times of deep despair and how loyalty and obligation can trump the decision to stay or leave in a union without love. Vollständige Rezension lesen

Review: To See You Again: A True Story of Love in a Time of War

Nutzerbericht  - Cheri Lesko - Goodreads

The book was well written but seemed a bit unbalanced. So much time was spent before and during the war and then so little time after the war. The strength of their mother was amazing. Vollständige Rezension lesen
