The publisher will donate 1,000 copies of Questions I Am Asked About the Holocaust by Hedi Fried to libraries and schools

In honour of International Holocaust Remembrance Day on 27 January, Scribe is to donate 1,000 copies of its new title Questions I Am Asked About The Holocaust, by campaigning 94-year-old Auschwitz survivor Hedi Fried, to UK schools and libraries. The book, which is suitable for adults or younger readers, answers the questions about the Holocaust "you never dared to ask - and explains why today's politicians need to heed the lessons of the past more than ever".

Fried was 19 when the Nazis snatched her family from their home in Eastern Europe and transported them to Auschwitz, where her parents were murdered and she and her sister were forced into hard labour until the end of the war. Now aged 94, she has spent her life educating young people about the Holocaust. Questions such as: "How was it to live in the camps?", "Did you dream at night?", "Why did Hitler hate the Jews?", and "Can you forgive?"
