I Kept My Promise

“On September 1, 1939, the sound of guns and a marching army shattered the dreams of a child…
…Although liberated 68 years ago, the memories of that time still cast a shadow over my life. I will remain imprisoned by them to the end of my days. Amidst the silence of the world, the victims had cried out: “Remember us.” Their cry became my eleventh commandment.”

-Gerda Frieberg


“All survivors are witnesses. Their testimonies are invaluable and irreplaceable. This also applies to Gerda Frieberg’s memoir. Written with sensitivity and conviction, it deserves to be read by all those who believe that what we so poorly call the Holocaust must be remembered.”

-Elie Wiesel
