Cut off from the outside world, they faced hunger, boredom, the constant cruelties of living in confined quarters, and the ever-present threat of discovery and death.

Born to survivalists in the mountains of idaho, tara westover was seventeen the first time she set foot in a classroom.

A prominent viennese psychiatrist before the war, viktor frankl was uniquely able to observe the way that both he and others in auschwitz coped (or didn’t) with the experience. He noticed that it was the men who comforted others and who gave away their last piece of bread who survived the longest – and who offered proof that everything can be taken away from us except the ability to choose our attitude in any given set of circumstances
