This Holocaust memoir describes what happens to Elli Friedmann who is 13 when the Nazis invade Hungary in 1944. "I Have Lived A Thousand Years" is a bittersweet chronicle of the power of faith and perseverance. The author never lost hope that she would somehow survive the horrors that she witnessed day after day. Her testament is a worthy addition to the literature of the Holocaust, and one that younger readers will be able to identify with.
