Sisters and survival: The saga of Ida and Doris This is a tale of two sisters. Of their manifold tragedies and misfortunes — and their rare good luck. Of their survival, not only of the Holocaust but the Blitz that raged alongside it. Of their uncertain journeys, their unknown destinations, as children, as orphans. Of the unlikely fact that both are alive today to tell the tale. And of the love these sisters had, and still have, for one another. Where to begin?
