Remarkable first-person story of survival in Nazi occupied Poland. Narrowly escaping the Nazi sweep in Southern Poland, Jafa Wallach and her husband, Natan, a physician, were able to send their four-year-old daughter to safety (they prayed) while they themselves—along with two of Jafa's brothers—managed to dig a shallow hole in the ground beneath
the cellar of an heroic Polish mechanic's shop.

Very moving story. I am always mistified at how people could survive the atrocities committed by the Nazi's. The bravery of the survivors and those that helped them is a true testament to the power of faith and hope.

Frightening to read, almost impossible to imagine yet again it tells the horrors of living in a nazi controlled environment. Realistically all the Germans should have been exterminated at the end of the war, they all knew just what was going on

The stories in appendix are somehow hard to follow but the first part is very good, easy to follow.
