The Last Daughter

A compelling novel based on a remarkable true story in World War II.

Sometimes courage is all you have…


In the early dawn hours of September 8, 1939, ten-year-old Dina Frydman sits at her bedroom window watching storm clouds blacken the horizon. Nightmares have kept her awake all night. She hears a distant rumble as the tanks roll into Radom. The Nazis have conquered Poland and nothing will ever be the same. Dina and her family prepare for the worst but they could never imagine what the worst would be.


From the deprivation of the Glinice and the Walowa ghettos, to the back-breaking slave labor camps at Pionki and Hindenberg, to the menacing smokestacks of Auschwitz, and the wall of death at Bergen-Belsen, Dina’s six-year journey is unforgettable. Her will to survive is remarkable. But most extraordinary is her buoyant spirit that touches the lives of everyone she meets. As Dina travels through the gates of hell, her life becomes a beacon in one of the darkest storms in human history.


Based on the unforgettable true story of Dina Frydman, one of the youngest survivors of the Holocaust, The Last Daughter will reaffirm your faith in the triumph of the human spirit.
