"In My Hands" is the memoir of a woman who as a young girl, rescued several Jews and helped others from the clutches of the Nazis during WW II. As a Polish nursing student she experienced the Russian/German division of Poland, ending up in Soviet occupied Poland before Hitler invaded Russia. Numerous experiences toughened her on her life's path which placed her among the Righteous of Nations. The lively narrative makes this a quick read.

Inspiring Book!

by Zionschild on Aug 20, 2009

This is a wonderful example of a women's unselfish acts of bravery in a time of horror. She risked her life countless times to save Jewish people. I am thankful for people like her who did the right thing despite the danger to herself. She should be an example for all of us. I think this should be recommended reading for High School students. I would recommend this book to everyone. May this horror never happen again.
