About the book
This is Holocaust story about Alicia,a twelve-year-old Jewess living in Poland during the occupation of Germany, and her recollections of events surrounding the Holocaust are amazing. Just a child herself, she is reponsible for the rescue of dozens of people during this time because she has courage and conviction. Alicia Appleman-Jurman went on to save the lives of thousands of Jews, offering them her own courage and hope in a time of upheaval and tragedy.
What I love about it
I love this story most for its apparent coincidences of good fortune.
Her story is heartbreakingly inspiring and made me understand the real meaning of family, love, and forgiveness.
Quotes to remember
“I was beginning to die myself. I realized that a person could actually become one of the living dead; could go on living but feel nothing, not pain, not fear, not sorrow. I was very near to this state.”
How I can apply it’s content to my life.
Teaches us to be kind and forgiving.
Teaches us that family is not only those who are related to us by blood.
