[slight bumping to corners of front cover]. Trade PB (maps, facsimiles) Memoir by a Polish Jew whose family was forced to flee Warsaw when the Nazis overran Poland in 1939. Her family was subsequently killed, and after narrowly avoiding imprisonment in the Treblinka death camp, she spent the war as a refugee in Nazi-occupied Europe, "always living next to death or capture. In 1945, at the age of twenty, [she] began to write her memoirs from a hospital in Germany. The result is a riveting roller-coaster ride told openly and movingly through the eyes of a survivor." Originally published in Polish in 1984.
