A Century of Wisdom is a deeply moving account of the epic journey of one woman who has crossed decades and national borders to defy death and to inspire us all. Set against the beauty of our Czech culture and the events of the twentieth century that had shut us off from the rest of the world for nearly fifty years, Alice Herz-Sommer’s life illustrates a deep ethical and spiritual strength. Her memories are our memories. Through her suffering we recall our darkest hours. Through her example we rise to find the best in ourselves.”
Václav Havel

“I have rarely read a Holocaust survivor’s memoir as enriching and meaningful. Get Caroline Stoessinger’c book, A Century of Wisdom, telling Alice Herz-Sommer’s tale of struggles and triumphs. You will be rewarded.”
Elie Wiesel
