Tosia Schneider discusses her book, *Someone Must Survive to Tell the World*, in which she describes life in Poland under Nazi occupation. Schneider spent her early childhood in an idyllic Jewish setting in a small town in Poland. The advent of Hitler and World War II destroyed that world and turned her life into unspeakable horror. All her immediate family was murdered as well as most of her extended family. In 1949, she came to the US, married, and raised a family in Atlanta. These memoirs fulfill the pledge she made to her mother in the bitter winter of 1942: to tell the world should she survive. It is also a plea to her children and grandchildren to remember the past and struggle against hatred, prejudice, and anti-Semitism.
