- By: Heather Morris
- Narrated by: Louise Brealey
- Length: 10 hrs and 51 mins
Cilka was only 16 years old when she was taken to Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp, in 1942. The Commandant at Birkenau, Schwarzhuber, noticed her long beautiful hair, and forced her separation from the other women prisoners. Cilka did what she had to in order to survive Auschwitz. And yet after Russian soldiers liberated Auschwitz in 1945, Cilka was charged as a collaborator and sentenced to serve a 15-year sentence for 'sleeping with the enemy'. Once again, she found herself on a brutal train journey, crammed into a carriage with many desperate women and children.
The Incredible Cruelty of Being

unbelievable, emotional - a must read for everyone
Its unimaginable the suffering that these people endured during this period which is not so long ago really. I struggled to listen and imagine some of the experiences and trying to feel the emotions that people lived through can only make you realise how lucky we are to be alive each and every day. A perfect example why history should not repeat itself .
