Inge Auerbacher.
Holocaust Survivor,
Author and Inspirational Speaker.

“I stand tall and proud,
My voice shouts in silence loud:
I am a real person still,
No one can break my spirit or will:
I am a star!”

From “I Am A Star” published by Penguin Putnam Inc.


Inge with dollInge was born in Germany and spent three years between 7-10 years of age in the Terezin (Theresienstadt) concentration camp in Czechoslovakia, where out of 15,000 children, about 1 percent survived. She remembers when the now famous children’s opera Brundibar was first written and performed while she was in Terezin.  She tells her life story in three books; "I am a Star"- Child of the Holocaust, "Beyond the Yellow Star to America" and "Finding Dr. Schatz" - The Discovery of Streptomycin and A Life It Saved. Inge has also reached out to the African-American community by writing about her friends, Mary and Martha DeSaussure; pioneering track stars of Brooklyn in her third book, "Running Against the Wind." As a Holocaust survivor her spirit and achievements are truly remarkable.
