  • Memoirs of a young girl, who spent the beginning of the war and occupation with her family in Warsaw. She suffered the loss of most of her friends and relatives there. After staying almost totally alone, she decided to fight for her life in another city - Czestochowa. Living partly in the ghetto, and partly outside it, she co-operates, among others, with the Jewish underground. Thanks to contacts with Poles, she supports and helps her compatriots who live in the ghetto. After the liquidation of the Czestochowa ghetto, she was arrested and then deported to labour in Germany. She started to write her memories there.
