[light shelfwear, slight fading to cloth at base of spine; jacket has a medium-size chip at bottom of front panel (unfortunately taking out some of the author's name), various other small chips, nicks, and tears, a little paper loss at spine ends]. Subtitled (on the jacket flap only) "From Death to Life in Eastern Europe," this book chronicles the suffering of the Jews (especially those of Eastern Europe) during World War II, offering "a vivid presentation of the immediate past and an informative study of the present -- the foundation upon which the future's sound hopes may be based." The book's depiction of "the Jews in resistance and in reconstruction" includes the stories of numerous heroes of the time: "the almost fabulous exploits of that great fighter Colonel David Dragunski; the feats and the fortitude of Olga Kanotorovich through the years when she kept her family alive in an Odessa cellar and worked as spy for the partisans; the deeds which won four decorations -- and four wound stripes -- for Lenya Okun, who joined the Partisans at the age of eleven; these and more."
