Dasha grew up in concentration camps. Norbert served as a Polish soldier until captured by the Germans. Lucia spent much of the war fleeing from the Germans, only to be captured by the Russians. Joseph, a teenager, became aware of just how deadly the concentration camps were on his first night at Auschwitz. Elizabeth experienced her twenty-first birthday at Auschwitz. George literally lived in a hole in the ground, aided by friends who risked their lives to help a Jew. In "Defiance in the Face of Hell," these six survivors of the Holocaust share their poignant and painful memories of how the war affected them. Carefully woven and retold by C.S. Basham, these delicate stories will break your heart and garner your deep respect.
