A young girl’s survival story against all odds in the face of pure evil
Krystyna’s childhood was full of happy moments, it was filled with friends, both Polish and Ukrainian and a lovely family. But her happy childhood did not last long; World War II changed it forever. Krystyna’s family, together with the Jewish community of her small village, was forced to live in the Kołomyja ghetto, where people died of hunger and physical exhaustion.
And yet the worst was about to come…
Her parents and two older sisters were brutally murdered, and young Krystyna was left all by herself. Now, with no one to look after her, she had to survive on her own. She faced unimaginable hunger, thirst and fear. Yet, against all odds, she managed to survive.
Providence has chosen for her to live.
The book contains a unique collection of more than 100 photos, taken by Krystyna’s father, a professional photographer, who sent them to his family in Israel before the war. Krystyna’s powerful memoir will leave you breathless and heartbroken, but full of inspiration and hope.
