Post a message about THE CHOICE…

A powerful, moving memoir–and a practical guide to healing–written by Dr. Edith Eva Eger, an eminent psychologist whose own experiences as a Holocaust survivor help her treat patients and allow them to escape the prisons of their own minds. #TheChoice

Meet Dr. Edith Eger: 90-yr-old high-kickin’ San Diegan, holocaust survivor & thriver, lauded therapist and speaker, and truly inspiring human being. Her memoir, THE CHOICE, goes beyond her experience at Auschwitz and surviving the Holocaust. It weaves the story of a teenage girl carrying her secrets and survivor’s guilt into womanhood and motherhood, and growing into forgiveness and acceptance and ultimately a source of healing for others. #TheChoice

‘The Choice is a gift to humanity. One of those rare and eternal stories that you don’t want to end and that leave you forever changed. Dr. Eger’s life reveals our capacity to transcend even the greatest of horrors and to use that suffering for the benefit of others. She has found true freedom and forgiveness and shows us how we can as well.’ —DESMOND TUTU, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate #TheChoice
