Im 15 and my sister gave me this book to read, i wasnt really appealed to it because the cover didnt seem so exciting, i read the the book and ive been hit with waves of rage, sadness, depression and at sometimes humor, Ive read it twice now in a week, I cant stop looking at your picture in the cover, its the only book thats really captured my attention. I am sad knowing that i may never meet you.

I am a student who is doing a holocaust project for Language arts, I have read some of your experiances but I wanted to ask..were there times you lost faith in God yourself? Did you ever wish you could go back in time and try to save people like you did that day? Did you ever have any regrets ? or have some fear of any sort

I'm not sure if you'll ever actually see this but I just feel that it's never a fail to try, as I have learned from yourself.
I have just finished reading your book, literally 30 minutes ago and I cannot stop sobbing. You are truely a remarkable woman and my respect and love for you is one far from something which can be explained in words. Your story is one like I've never read before. Yes, I've read emotional stories, but nothing that has touched me this deeply. In no way can I relate, and I feel shame trying to understand what you're going through. You're my hero and inspiration! Keep doing what you're doing. God bless.

After I read this compelling story 10-12 years ago, I saw that she lived quite close...I contacted her and was amazed at how open and approachable she was, a remarkable example of the human spirit

Dear Mrs. Jurman,
It was mandatory to read your book in my seventh grade English class. Looking at the cover, I really didn't want to read and thought it would be boring. Once I started, however, I couldn't stop! It became my favorite and since then I have read it again several times. It never gets old. Each time, I learn something new, and each time I cry. I like it so much, I recommended it to my family and friends, and read aloud to my family whenever I got the chance. I read the foreword by your husband. He said that you had nightmares while writing the story; it was like reopening wounds. I can only image what that would feel like. You're my hero, and a great inspiration. And I wish the very best for you.

i read your book in 9th grade as an assignment, and it was the first book i fully read. i couldent even imagine the horror you had to go through and i give you all my simpathy, and to reach out to people now and tell your story over and over agian is amazing. i belive everyone should know what people had to suffer through during the haulocaust. i am now 17 years old and currently attending the alaska job corps. i reccomended to my teacher that we read your book as a class and i would like a letter or e-mail from you to tell the class after we read the book. i know that its alot to ask for, but it would make my day to know that i have a letter that i can cherrish for the rest of my life and hopfully one day read it to my grandkids. you dont have to, but it would be greatly appriciated. thank you for reading this and thank you for telling your story to the world.

your mother knew the truth alicia-that you were meant to live through the war. you are a hero, guide, roll model, and blessing to this world. i cannot begin to know what you lived through. i can only thank you for going through the excruciating experience of writing it all down for humanity. your work is helping us grow beyond our foolish prejudices into the truth of the oneness of all life. Thank you again from the depths of my heart.

I met you and saw you speak to my school when I was in the fifth grade. That was 19 years ago. I have always remembered your story and your presence. Parts of your story have stayed with me all these years and I wanted to thank you for speaking about your experiences despite how painful it must be. You taught me a valuable lesson that day and I have carried it with me since then. Thank you.
