A native of Hungary, Dr. Eger was just a young, Jewish teenager when
she and her family were sent to Auschwitz in 1944. Her parents lost their lives there. One year later, she was rescued by a young, American solider who noticed her hand moving slightly among a pile of dead bodies.
She is a prolific author and sought-after clinical psychologist and lecturer who helps individuals discard their limitations and achieve things they thought impossible.
