In this anthol­o­gy, twen­ty-five women reflect on their expe­ri­ences of sur­vival — from the heart-stop­ping fears of hid­ing to the dras­tic risks of pass­ing” as non-Jews, and from the ter­rors of the Nazi camps to the treach­eries of the Sovi­et Union. Each unique account is woven togeth­er by a com­mon thread: women resist­ed and, ulti­mate­ly, tri­umphed against the bru­tal­i­ties they faced dur­ing the Holo­caust. The first-ever anthol­o­gy pub­lished by the Azrieli Foun­da­tion, this pow­er­ful col­lec­tion fea­tures a wide vari­ety of nar­ra­tive styles, includ­ing prose, poet­ry, and diary excerpts.
