"When we think of issues of equity, diversity and inclusion we often think about what is wrong with "x" or about the external actions we might take to "fix" something. Dr. Eger's book takes a different view, from someone who survived extreme exclusion, that is, a Holocaust survivor, and her journey to the internal search for healing and meaning. She inspires us to think about our own resilience and how to build a life that takes adversity and turns it into a gift for humanity.

Winner of the 2017 National Jewish Book Award and 2018 Christopher Award.
