I Dared to Live (Hardcover)
While some 500,000 Jews were being brutalized inside the Warsaw Ghetto and systematically annihilated, a young and beautiful blonde, blue-eyed Jewish girl from a hasidic family was working in a Polish factory, outside the walls of the ghetto, where she had assumed the identity of a Catholic Polish woman, and became part of an underground network of people - including disguised Jews and Poles engaged in anti-Nazi activities. Each of these people was taking a heroic stand against the ultimate evil of the Nazi occupiers of Poland, resisting dehumanization, death and destruction against all odds, and prevailing in the end. In this true story, the author falls in love with a German officer and reveals her secret to him, putting both their lives in danger.
