Her name is Alicia. She was thirteen when she began saving the lives of people she did not know--while fleeing the Nazis through war-ravaged Poland. Her family cruelly wrenched from her. Alicia rescued other Jews from the Gestapo, led them to safe hideouts, and lent them her courage and hope. Even the sight of her mother's brutal murder could not quash this remarkable child's faith in human goodness--or her determination to prevail against overwhelming odds.

Once again I am amazed at the courage and resourcefulness found within this survivor in the face of loss and cruelty without limits. Alicia always put saving others' lives before her own but managed to save many. The jewish WW2 survivors and resisters always make me wonder if I would have even 1% of their qualities which enabled them to survive and love again
