Torn from her mother’s arms when she was fourteen years of age, Teresa Leska endured Nazi imprisonment. A political hostage from March of 1943 to April of 1945, her voice leads the reader through her memories of a cherished childhood disrupted, teen years of lonely anguish living and working imprisoned, and triumphant survival growing into a successful adult in a life reinvented.

Excerpt

I worked and my conditioned indifference clung to me like a shroud of unconscious security. I kept myself intentionally detached because they were Germans and in my child’s mind, all Germans were bad people. I knew that these people controlled my life.



Professional Reviews

Fascinating, distrubing, and compelling true account of WWII, seen through the eyes of a young girl
The horrors of World War II, seen through the eyes of a young girl, is a very somber tale. This book paints a vivid picture of atrocities and war crimes committed by Nazi Germany in Poland. It's not all bleak and dreary--there are happy moments, but the dangers, heartbreaks and horrors one might expect in such a war are there in graphic detail.

If the thought of a priest being murdered in cold blood by German soldiers, family and friends terrorized or "disappeared" being witnessed by a young child bothers you, it should. But these events really happened, and the story needs to be told.

Amy Zajac does a masterful job of capturing the voice of the young child, now her mother, years after the fact. If you'd like to get a feel for what life had been like in Nazi-occupied Poland, read Ms. Zajac's book. It's an excellent wakeup call for anyone who takes our current freedoms for granted.
