Although much has been written about the war years, Gutta Sternuch's exceptional account stands out in its vibrancy and honesty. Through her memoir we learn about Chasidic life in pre-war Poland; the poverty and fear together with the spiritual heroism in the Warsaw ghetto; the ray of light that was the Bais Yaakov movement; the successful rescue of Warsaw Jews by Jews in Switzerland; the internment camp in Vittel; and the rebuilding of lives after the war.

Includes two scholarly essays by Dr. David Kranzler: A Historical Overview of Poland Between the Wars, and Secular Jewish Ideologies.
