" The version I had was the audiobook.It was riveting.Do read/listen to this memoir. " said.

" Beautiful book of a courageous survivor. Loved her voice. The story was captivating and unexpected. " said.

" This is a gripping piece of non-fiction. Informative & well written. This is an excellent mid-range choice for introducing readers of all ages to a sad piece of history that we must hope we never repeat. " said.

" Although Price’s writing style isn’t particularly artful, the story of Barbara Reichmann’s survival in World War II is so compelling that it doesn’t need literary flourishes to be a page-turner. Suspenseful, astonishing, heart-breaking, and inspiring. " said.

" Personal CopyThis will be a good addition to the WWII/Holocaust collection in my library that is heavily used for 8th grade units on this topic. I don't have too much set in Poland. Will go nicely with Nielsen's Resistance.Personally, I think I need to take a break from this topic! I've just read so many books on it! " said.

" This memoir recounts one young woman's courage, determination and luck to survive through the Nazi occupation of Poland.This book was classified as Young Adult biography in my library system.I loved how the recording and telling of this memoir came into being.One can never truly fully comprehend the horrors and far-reaching impact of the Nazi regime on all the lives and families it impacted. This one story reminds one to think of the millions of other lives. " said.

"This book reads like historical fiction, but is the true story of Barbara Reichmann (born Sura Gitla Gomolinska) who survived the Holocaust in Poland. Based in interviews with Barbara and her daughter (co-author Helen West), the narrative draws the reader in to the horrors of the time. Raised in a prominent Jewish family, Barbara takes on an alternative identity as a non-Jew in order to survive. Always staying one step ahead of the Nazis & neighbors who would give her up, Barbara’s story is one of resilience. " said.
