I am doing a prodject on the book "The Cage". I never realized what people went through till i read your book. My eyes have opened widely and realized i am lucky to be where i am today. I have some questions for you. How old are you? Do you suffer any medical problems today? Did you ever find your mother or brothers?

Hi I am a student and I am learning about the haulocaust and heard that you had survived it and just wanted to know more about it. Thank You.

Ms. Sender - I have read your book "The Cage" multiple times and I am honored to be able to read about your experience and how you survived. I am finally going to be able to teach your book to my students (I teach 5th grade). Is there anything that you really think should be pointed out specifically to them? Also, I noticed that you stated you live on Long Island (I'm actually originally from LI) and that you do not travel far. I teach in Fremont, Ohio and I am sure that you consider Ohio too far - is there any way to have you speak with my students in May? Maybe a webcam or something like that? Thank you for your time. Renee

Hello Ms.Sender. I have chosen your book to do a project on and I have to Make cards for each character. My library hasn't received the book yet and the due date is approaching. I was just wondering if you could give me a character list of the book. I would really appreciate it.

My class read your book The Cage and i was wondering how did you feel when you never saw Yulek again?

i just finished reading your book "the cage" and i cried about a million times.i have three questions for you if you dont mind answering them: 1) Did you ever find out what happened to your friend Shmulek and Yulek? 2)And if you didnt find them, who is your husband? Because it says in the book you liked Yulek but it doesnt say anything more about him. And i was wondering if maybe he was your husband. I am sorry for all the troubles and sickness you had to go through but im glad that you survived. May God bless you.

I am curently reading your book and i just have to say that i find it inspirational and an example of true human courage and love. I have read other books and articles from Holocaust but this one has touched me the most. I believe you are a very couragious, wonderful, and strong women to not only have survived but to have also taken great care of those around you even when all hope seemed lost(lost atleast to those reading this, you & your family however never really lost your hope for a brighter tommarrow and that kind of faith is admireable) I'm not entirely sure what else to say i really wanted to write you a letter instead but i don't have the right words for that and i wouldn't want to overburden you with a simple letter from a young girl. I guess all that's left to say is Thank You for giving the world your story that i know has inspired many to be better people especially myself. My you be blessed for all your kindness and faith. =)

Dear Ms Sender, I have had the privilege of teaching The Cage once again to my students. They are so involved in your experience. They want to meet you so desperately. I know that may not be possible, but a few years back, you graciously agreed to a phone conference. WOuld you be open to that again? It was a life changing experience for my students and for me.
Thank you for your courage and sharing your story.

I had the privilege of reading your book the Cage in the seventh grade; that was over 22 years ago. Your story as well as others like it have left a indelible marks on my heart. That same little 12 year old girl wrote a letter to you...and much to my surprise you wrote back! You closed the letter with, "As long as there's life there is hope." I must have read that letter 50 times! Your simple act of kindness has stayed with me. No words will ever be enough to express my gratitude...so I will simply say, I will always remember. May G_D continue to bless and keep you.
