Your books and the miracle of your survival after all the ordeals you went through to tell us the truth impressed me very much.
My students in Japan learned about this dark chapter of history through your book. We received many general informations on worldwar II. But it is very different to read personal testemonies as yours. The history becomes personal. Your message to develop real tolerance and understanding, to become not resistant against pain
caused by the terror of our modern world is an important "Bridge of hope"
for us, but we have to become active, that Shoah never will repeat again.

My Dearest Mrs. Livia Bitton-Jackson,
I had stumbled across two of your books by accident. They were in a Teen Section at a near-by Barnes And Noble bookstore, which I noticed while exiting the restroom, along with another book, "The Cage," by Ruth M. Sender, of which I also purchased and read.
After reading "I Have Lived A Thousand Years," I eagerly began reading its sequel. In fact, I have ordered the 1980 publication, "Elli." ((I am wondering how the 1983 publication of "Elli: Coming of Age in the Holocaust" may differ from "Elli.")) I will be looking to purchase the newest release in the trilogy, "Hello, America," as soon as I locate it!!!
It will be a dream fulfilled to meet you, and/or other Holocaust Survivors!!! I cannot begin to wrap my mind around the horror and insane inhumanity to other human-beings!!! But to meet the dear and cherished souls--who tell their stories and need not ever, EVER be forgotten--is more than a dream. If only this can be MY reality someday, before it is too late.
Blessed Be to ALL who survived and had the courage to start their lives over, that which survived out of the terror and insanity of evil-doers. And to those who perished, may their souls find peace, somehow, while they watch over the survivors!!! Love to you and to all!!!

Hi Mrs. Bitton,
I am writing to you for my grandmother. She has read your book 'i have lived 1000 years' which was translated into german. She was very much moved with your exellent writing. She is in the eighties and has lived during the world war in Switzerland and were very involved with refugees which arrived to Switzerland and getting visas for them. She moved some years ago to Israel and would very much like to get to know you personally. Please let me know how she can contact you directly. As this is important to her, i would appreciate it very much.
With the best wishes, Miriam Wolf

Livia has written more books. You should read her next book My Bridges of Hope and her latest book Hello America. They are just as wonderful as I Have Lived A Thousand Years.

dear Livia, I hope you remember your visit and moving speech which you gave two years ago at Zeitlin High School in Tel Aviv, on "asara be tevet". I certainly have not forgotten you and your happy smile and outgoing personality. Discussing the shoa, you asked the many students, what would you take if you could only take a small bag if you had to run away and leave everything else behind, as Elli did. I replied, photographs, my photographs. the story of your courage, and your faith is an example for all of us, even those of us living in Israel who have to deal with our own national problems. We must remain real brothers, united in our ideals. I hope you will answer when you can. shalom, Michali

I just finished "Hello America" today and was disappointed with the ending. Mostly, I'm just left wondering, "What happened next?" Is Dr. Bitton-Jackson planning on writing another book in the series?
