Description

It was an act of defiance, a statement of hope…and a crime punishable by death. Making a birthday card in Auschwitz was all of those things. But that is what Zlatka did, in 1944, for her best friend, Fania. She stole and bartered for paper and scissors, secretly creating an origami heart. Then she passed it to every girl at the worktables to sign with their hopes and wishes for happiness, love, and most of all, freedom. Fania knew what that heart meant, both for herself and for all the other girls. That's why she kept it hidden through the bitter days in the camp and through the death marches. She kept it always.

Based on the true story of Fania and Zlatka and the bond that helped them both to hope for the best in the face of the worst, this heartbreaking novel memorializes one of the few objects created in Auschwitz that still survives. It can be seen in the Montreal Holocaust Memorial Centre.
