Description
As a young girl Edith Eger of Kosice, Czechoslovakia, was deported to Auschwitz where both of her parents were murdered. After the war, she moved to the United States and became a clinical psychologist with her own practice in La Jolla, CA. While she could have chosen to remain a permanent victim, she realized early on that true freedom can only be found by forgiving, letting go, and moving on.
