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.
