The dramatic story of a Jewish childhood ravaged by the Nazis. A young girl is the shocked witness to the destruction of her family and makes a thrilling and miraculous escape from the same fate. By the time she was barely a teenager, Johanna-Ruth Dobschiner was already an adept fugitive, one step ahead of her Nazi pursuers as she went underground, moving from one sympathetic Dutch family to another until the end of the war. On her travels she encounters a Christian community, and through them she discovers Jesus and realises that she has been selected to live in more ways than one...

Review Text

  • By Mr. Geoffrey E. Goodman on 12 September 2017

    This is a great gripping story involving a family escaping from the Nazis in WW2 - the author found herself alone moving from one safe house to another.

    A wonderful book

  • By Country reader on 11 October 2009

    Why does God allow this woman to live when so many others of her race perished during the holocaust? Nobody knows. But the author's story is fast and gripping. She really conveys the awful circumstances that people who were on the run had to endure. I would certainly recommend this book.

    To have a detailed record of a young Jewish survivor of the Holocaust who was not arrested, but went into hiding, helped by brave Dutch people who gave Johanna refuge, is a remarkable story. Quite often when reading a good book, there are numerous events as you read through their story that will amaze the reader. This is so with "Selected to Live". However, the most remarkable event is saved for the end, years after World War Two ended, when a French woman on holiday in a remote island off Scotland's west coast purchased Johanna's book in one of its early forms. What happened next is simply Divine - a God inspired moment of discovery. I cried - in wonder and praise. David Hamshire
