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  - Brenda - Goodreads

Heartbreaking, sole definition of survival right here! Holocaust, concentration camps, murder, starvation and true hell on earth and love, true love. In the midst of war, a love grows strong, but when war moved them in separate directions, would they ever find each other again? Vollständige Rezension lesen

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

Nutzerbericht  - Milla Tuominen - Goodreads

This book is the best I have read. It is at the same time horrible story of the pain that not many people have gone through and an unbelievable love story about love that only few people can experience in their life. Vollständige Rezension lesen
