Daily Life Lessons from Wendy Holden: Born Survivors

Wendy Holden is a former foreign and war correspondent and author of more than thirty books.  For the 75th anniversary of the Second World War, she’s re-releasing her book, Born Survivors, a Sunday Times bestseller published in twenty-two countries and translated into sixteen languages.  

It documents the story of three pregnant women who fought to survive the holocaust and is a life-affirming celebration of the human capacity to love amid inconceivable cruelty.  

Three babies of three pregnant mothers survived the holocaust principally because the camp in which they were held at Auschwitz had run out of gas.   Sixty-five years later, the three 'miracle babies' met for the first time for the anniversary of the liberation that saved them and came to regard one another as siblings.

This book is a fascinating exploration of the kindness of strangers and the truth that evil can indeed bring out the best in others.

Listen to the first chapter of Born Survivors below.
