“Even though I am suppressed, I will always come back to life.” Franta Bass, age 11, ca. 1942-1944

Rappaport explains in her introduction that she wrote this book in part because even though she was Jewish she had always heard that “Jews went like lambs to the slaughter” during World War II. When she found the truth to be very different she believed more people needed to know stories of Jewish resistance. Filled with personal accounts based on primary sources and interviews and hundreds of photographs—mainly of young people involved in escapes, uprisings and rebellions—this book is an excruciating, compelling, and essential read.
