From the Publisher

Remarkable first-person story of survival in Nazi occupied Poland. Narrowly escaping the Nazi sweep in Southern Poland, Jafa Wallach and her husband, Natan, a physician, were able to send their four-year-old daughter to safety (they prayed) while they themselves—along with two of Jafa's brothers—managed to dig a shallow hole in the ground beneath
the cellar of an heroic Polish mechanic's shop.

A Dark Time in Denmark's History

Had the Allies landed on the Western coast of Denmark on D-Day, the Nazis would have been ready.

Invaded by German forces in April 1940, Denmark was spared harsh treatment during most of its occupation.
