Eva’s Story

Eva Schloss is a Holocaust survivor, peace activist, international speaker, teacher and a humanitarian.

She is also the step-sister of Anne Frank who wrote the book “The Diary of Anne Frank”.

Eva has an incredible story of survival, grit, loss and ultimate triumph of the human spirit against all odds. She survived escape from her homeland in Austria, two years in hiding in Amsterdam, capture on her 15th birthday, nine months in Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp, repatriation to Holland, the death of her beloved father and brother… and the poison of bitterness, the burden of grief, the integration of loss.

Forty years after the end of World War II Eva began to share her story.  She has since written three books and spoken to more than one thousand audiences about her experiences.

Eva’s story is sensational and difficult to imagine, yet her insightful message reminds us that life is precious and fragile, that the creative spirit is stronger than fear, that the power of good is immeasurable, and that love makes a difference.

Love is all that matters.

One student’s thoughts about Eva’s Story…

My most important lesson was about total strangers.  I realized I should not judge people…  Now I give everyone a chance and try to learn something from everyone I meet. 

I look at a person for themselves, and not how different they may look… I want to be treated the same way by people I do not know…

By being a more tolerant person I now have many more people in my life that may someday be a friend… Even a stranger can change your path in life and help you become a better person.
