Beverly Hills Concentration Camp

Flying Squirrel Publishing  2016


Randi Maggid, who has found relief through non-traditional medical alternatives, bravely shares her story in her emotional and insightful new memoir, Beverly Hills Concentration Camp. With names changed to protect the privacy of the book’s characters, Beverly Hills Concentration Camp opens on the present life of Alix, a seemingly-ordinary mom, who through a series of flashbacks, takes the reader along on her healing journey -- from the depths of severe physical pain and anguish to the heights of awakened spirituality and health.

Alix, the daughter of Jewish Holocaust survivors, describes the unlikely struggle of growing up in a beautiful Spanish house in Beverly Hills with the weight of the concentration camps pressing down on her; many of the same horrible things that happened to her mother were happening to her. Little did she know her past would catch up with her, cause her years of physical pain that would eventually require immediate surgery she was determined to avoid.

Her story encourages people to heal themselves on levels deeper than they ever thought possible.
