I wanted to let your members know about my book, Born Survivors, published May 5 in the US and 18 other countries which tells the incredible story of three babies born in the Holocaust who were liberated at Mauthausen by the 11th Armored Division in May 1945. After surviving Auschwitz and seven months of slave labor under the murderous Nazi regime, their mothers who each weighed less than 70lbs gave birth to their 3lb babies over two weeks towards the end of the war. They would all have died where it not for the Thunderbolts. The book mentions Sgt Albert Kosiek, Major Harold Stacy and Medic LeRoy Petersohn among others. All three babies will be marking their 70th birthdays with me in the Austrian camp on May 9/10 and have given me their blessing, as have the families of the three servicemen. The North American book launch will be at the Illinois Holocaust Museum in Skokie, Illinois on Tuesday, May 19 at 6:30 PM. I shall be there to introduce these three incredible survivors. Tickets are available in advance from the museum on 847.967.4800 or via their website at hwww.ilholocaustmuseum.org/pages/programs/events/ I hope to see some of you there. Wendy Holden

I have put it on my Gooreads to read list. My grandfather, Robert G. Lowe, was in the 11th.
