I enjoyed reading this book immensely. Krystyna Chiger provides many, many details of the group's underground struggle and writes in a way where you seem to be standing right there with her though her experiences. Her memory of her trials and tribulations throughout the Holocaust are surreal and give you a very realistic picture/insight on how the holocaust effected the Jewish people. If you are looking for a book to gain knowledge of World War II's Holocaust, or if you're just looking for a book that's a bit more real and presents raw, human emotion, I would, one hundred percent, recommend this book to you.

A must read. Moving and inspiring--especially because it's a true story.

This was a well told document of life during WW11 in Poland - an excellent read.
