Thanks for My Journey: A Holocaust Survivor's Story of Living Fearlessly

Front Cover
Emerald Book Company, 2012 - Biography & Autobiography - 302 pages
Born in Tshernovitz, Romania, Erica Miller was only seven years old when the Nazis forced her and her family into a holding camp in the Ukraine, where they remained for four harrowing years before being liberated. But their relief was cut short when they returned to their home and found it occupied by Russians. Only when her family immigrated to Israel was the author given the chance to escape the horrors of oppression and begin a new chapter in her life.

Facing obstacles most of us would find insurmountable, the author served in the Israeli Air Force, a rarity for women at the time, and then went on to earn a PhD in clinical psychology in America. As a dedicated mental health professional, Dr. Miller founded a chain of clinics that have helped hundreds of patients heal.

A story of hardship, perseverance, and ultimate victory, Thanks for My Journey also includes a special section where Dr. Miller shares her inspirational reflections on such topics as being Jewish, gender roles, and the power in being true to oneself.
