A native of Hungary, Edith Eger was a teenager when she and her family were sent to Auschwitz.
Despite overwhelming odds, Edith survived the Holocaust and emigrated with her husband and young daughter to America where she raised a family, earned a Ph.D., and practiced psychology. She spent decades hiding from her past, struggling with flashback and survivors guilt. 35 years after World War II ended, Edith returned to Auschwitz and was finally able to heal and forgive herself. Today she maintains a busy clinical practice and helps others heal.
