Luba: The Angel of Bergen-Belsen
Tricycle Press, 2003 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 64 pages
Why am I still alive? Why was I spared?
One night in 1944, Luba Tryszynska's questions were answered when she found fifty-four children abandoned behind the concentration camp at Bergen-Belsen. Luba knew if the Nazis caught her she could be executed.
But they are someone's children. And they are hungry.
Despite the mortal dangers, Luba and the women of her barracks cared for these orphans thro-ugh a winter of disease, starvation, and war.
Here is the true story of an everyday hero and the children who gave her a reason to live.
My name is Luba Tryszynska-Frederick and this is my story. I never thought of myself as a particularly brave person, certainly not a hero. But I found that inside every human being there is a hero waiting to emerge. I never could have done what I did without the help of many heroes. This story is for them, and for the children. --Luba Tryszynska-Frederick

I really enjoyed this story. It was amazing how much risks and sacrifices she took to keep all of those children alive. I kept expecting this story to take a tragic turn, but it actually had a great ending. Read full review
