Memoirs of a Hidden Child During the Holocaust: My Life During the War
A translation, from the original Polish, of the memoirs of a hidden child in Warsaw from 1942 until 1944. The author spent the last year of the war in a German labor camp under a false Polish Catholic identity. This document is unique in that it was written right after the war, starting in December 1945 while the events were still fresh in memory.
