I've just read Elli again after 15 years, and the sadness I felt was as if reading it for the first time. I would be so interested to know where she is now, and any other infirmation you can give me on her life sine "Elli" She is an amazing person, a true survivor, and very inspirational to me.

My mother just went to Israel, she'll be with my grandmother very soon. I'll try to remind her (my grand-mother) to check the site again soon.

I have read Elli about a hundred times since i was about in grade four. It is the most inspirational book that i have ever read. The suffering that you described is absolutely unimagineable. I find it so hard to conceive that horror that you have lived through. Because of this, i have chosen you as my personal role model. Livia Bitton-Jackson, you truly are an inspiration to all those who have suffered through hard times. I wish you all the happiness in the world.

Hi, my name is Laura and I am Livia's grand-daughter (she's my mother's mother). I was with my grandmother over passover and i shoed her the website and she said, when she has time, she will post, so keep your eyes open! If you wish to reach me you can IM me (aim/aol) at fivo72 (not email). Thank you, Laura.

I have your books I have lived a Thousand Years, My Bridges of Hope, and Hello America. They are so awesome. I laughed, I cried, mostly cried. I'm in 7th grade and I'm doing a project on your books. I've been interested in the Holocaust since I was four and went to Europe and was able to see Anne Frank's hiding place and the home of the Ten Boom family. I really enjoyed your books and there's so many other things I'd like to say and ask, but I must leave.

I've just finished your book. I believe in my heart that God has gifted the world with the opportunity to read about your experiences. I feel the closeness and connection I needed to establish with the holocaust victimes by reading this book. I now understand exactly what had happened from beginning to end. There is no documentary or history book that can provide the information and insight that your book has. I thank God for the gift of strength and endourane to you so that you could write this book and explain to the world that we are powerfully strong as both individuals and as Jews. I thank you for being who you are and I wish for your evey day to be filled with love and joy!

im probably the only boy on this message board. im in 8th grade and have read ive lived a thousand years book over 10 times already, although it is full of sorrow, suffering, death, it is also full of hope, the will to survive, believing and knowing that you're going to wake up tomorrow morning and survive for many more mornings, although id like to talk to livia, its not necessary, she along with others helped open my eyes to how much life is really worth, how i should be grateful to be alive each day, how short life can be, although there's little chance you'll see this, thank you Livia Bitton-Jackson.
