But You Did Not Come Back, Paperback Book


In 1944, at the age of fifteen, Marceline Loridan-Ivens was arrested in occupied France, along with her father.

They were sent to Auschwitz-Birkenau, and forcibly separated.

Though he managed to smuggle one last note to her, Marceline never spoke to her father again.

But You Did Not Come Back is Marceline's letter to the father she would never know as an adult.

This is a breath-taking memoir by an extraordinary woman, and a deeply moving message from a daughter to a father.
