Halina Birenbaum is a writer, poet and translator. She was born in Warsaw in 1929. She spent the occupation in the Warsaw Gheto, and in the concentration camps at Majdanek, Auschwitz, Ravensbrück and Neustadt-Glewe, from where she was freed in 1945.

In 1947 she emigrated to Israel. She worked in a kibbutz until her marriage in 1950. Now she lives in Hertzliya, with her husband and two sons. In numerous lectures and meetings with Israeli youth, she talks about her knowledge of the Holocaust.

Life and death during the years of the occupation and the martyrdom of Polish Jews in concentration camps and ghettos are the main subjects of Halina Birenbaum's prose and poetry. Her works are sad but devoid of hatred. What emerges from them are peace, kindless and belief in man.

She writes in Polish - the language of her childhood - and her work has been published in Poland, Israel, Germany and the United States.

Her memoirs "Hope is the Last to Die", which she was prompted to write by the Eichmann trial in Jerusalem, are shocking, authentic, and candid.
