Available for Pre-Order Now


The powerful true story of a Holocaust survivor told by her daughter—a tale that reminds us of the resilience of the soul and power of the heart to heal that is as uplifting and astonishing as it is heart wrenching.

With six months left to live and their time together running out, Mira Unreich sat down for a series of interviews with her daughter, Rachelle. Rachelle was expecting to hear tales of the past she knew by heart. But to her astonishment, Mira instead revealed a whole other side to her story. While imprisoned in four different concentration camps during World War II, Mira witnessed unbelievable horror and unforgettable acts of cruelty, from her mother being shot at Krakau-Plaszow to Red Army soldiers raping a mother and daughter on the day of liberation. Despite enduring such trauma, Mira pursued a life filled with passion and joyous purpose, living in Paris, learning seven languages, and creating a family of her own whom she cherished, protected, and guided.

Untitled is a conversation, a biography, and a tribute to family—a story of incredible resilience, the indestructible bond between mother and daughter–a connection that not even death can destroy–and the role that fate, chance and destiny play in one’s life. It is an unforgettable and life-affirming story of love, loss, and the deepest kind of faith, and a daughter’s love letter to her mother.
