Alicia Jurman is five-years-old when her story begins. It is 1935 and she is living in the East Polish town of Buczacz. Although brought up in an atmosphere of anti-Semitism, nothing could prepare this young girl for the Russian invasion of Poland and the full horror of the Nazi Occupation. When Alicia was thirteen, she fled the Nazis through the forests and fields of Poland. Despite her youth, she rescued other Jews from the grip of the Gestapo. At the end of the war, Alicia, whose parents and four brothers had all perished in the Holocaust, risked her life again - this time leading other survivors from Poland to Palestine through an underground route. Her capacity for heroism in the face of brutality and evil shines through, and her story cannot easily be forgotten. Told simply and modestly, this is a remarkable tribute to courage and determination, and how one young woman survived the horrors of war-torn Europe.… (mere)

This is probably the most remarkable memoir I have ever read. Alicia Jurman was a young Jewish girl living in eastern Poland and was nine years old when the Second World War broke out and her part of Poland was invaded first by the Soviet Union then, less than two years later, by Germany when it in turn invaded the Soviet Union. Her immediate family members were killed one by one, her father and all four of her brothers. She and her weakened mother spent time moving around the Polish countryside, trying to find food and shelter, Alicia seeking work on Polish and Ukrainian farms using various false identities (she spoke both languages fluently). She narrowly escaped being sent to the camps or shot a number of times through a combination of amazing resourcefulness, bravery and a considerable measure of good luck. Her home town of Buczacz was liberated by the Russians in March 1943 and for a short time, Alicia and her mother and other surviving Jews started to try to rebuild a reasonably normal life. However, after a couple of months the Nazis recaptured the town, they were betrayed and the SS shot Alicia's mother. Alicia and other surviving Jews were taken to a meadow outside the town for a mass shooting, from which Alicia was one of the few who managed to escape. Despite the horrible betrayals, there were also incidents of kindness from some local farmers and a lovely, generous old man who kept bees and sheltered not only Alicia and her mother, but six other Jews in his small cottage. After the second and final liberation and the end of the war, Alicia tried to help Jewish orphan children wandering the streets by setting up an informal orphanage, though only aged 15 herself. Shockingly, the few surviving Jews were still targetted and abused by many individual Poles and the Polish authorities, who did not want to be reminded how they had helped the Nazis to oppress them. Finally, the huge sense of alienation from Polish society led Alicia to make the decision to go to what would slightly later be the state of Israel, as well as helping to run an escape route for other Polish Jews who wanted to leave. One of the most shameful new things I learned from this account was how the British authorities, in trying to limit immigration to Palestine, even attacked and boarded the ship Alicia was on, killing some of the Jewish orphan children in the process. I could say a lot more about this remarkable 400 plus page book, which the author was driven to write in the 1980s to tell her story before it was too late; as she says of her fellow European Jews, "they cannot forget, and they cannot bear the thought that the world will not remember. As they grow older, it becomes more and more important to them that no one be permitted to forget." ( )

I read a lot of Holocaust-related stories in middle school. As morbid as it sounds, they were so interesting, and so heartbreaking to read. There are quite a few more still sitting in my closet, but this was my favorite, and probably the one that got me into the topic. A really great story, particularly because it's a true one. ( )

a very sad book. how did people survive? but just slightly boring. this has a long reading period since i had to return it to the library and get it again. ( )

I'm positive most people that have read this book will say it's completely memorable. This is the 1st book I have read that really impacted my life. I read it 15 yrs ago but I still recommend this people to everyone. The way Ms.Appleman-Jurman tells her story makes you feel you are there with her. It is a book about the Holocaust. I've read other Holocaust books, their stories are just as important today that it was then, but this is the one I would read again. ( )

This is a potentially useful addition to Holocaust literature, for although she never experienced the death camps, Appleman-Jurman lived in constant peril and managed to survive only through an extraordinary combination of luck and street sense.

Long and on occasion rambling, her story contributes to an infamous history as a tale, not only of survival, but of active resistance to oppression.

This book is dedicated to the children of the ghettos who were cruelly murdered by the Nazis and their collaborators.

May their memory live on forever, and may children never again suffer such anguish and despair.
