Born in 1939 Belgium, Sylvia Ruth Gutmann became an orphan at age three when her parents were sent to their deaths at Auschwitz. In her debut memoir, A Life Rebuilt: The Remarkable Transformation of a War Orphan, she chronicles her escape to Switzerland with her two sisters, their arrival in New York to the home of her uncle and his abusive wife, and her struggles to overcome the trauma of her childhood.
