This is not a book about survival in a concentration camp. It is a book about ordinary people, maybe like you & me, on the peripheries of the Holocaust. It is a book about an ordinary man who is a young Polish Jewish doctor & it tells of the discrimination he faced leading up to WWII.

It tells how his comfortable Polish middle class life is shattered first by the 1939 Soviet invasion showing the real face of the Stalinist regime & then by the Nazis in 1941 who are bent on exterminating a people merely because of their religious background. What to do? I ask myself how I would have reacted & I asked my father how he had the courage to choose to walk the line of a Jew hiding as a Christian. How brave was he? Not brave at all was his reply, I just did what I had to do. It is also the story of two brave Christians, the doctors girlfriend & a friend of hers, & how they chose to risk their lives & those of their families to prevent the unjust murder of another human being whose only crime was his ethnic background.

I ask myself could I now do the same if this situation arose.The book is priced as low as possible to encourage people to read about an amazing account of survival through the love & selflessness of others in a very dark time of mans recent history.Two of the central figures of this book, Marian Golebiowski & Irena Szumska-Ingram have been honored by Jerusalem’s Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum with the Righteous Among the Nations award.

See the Yom Ha’atzmaut 2010 speech by Dor Shapira of the Israeli Embassy to the Sydney NSWJBD in relation to Irena Sumskas award:http://www.google.com.hk/url?sa=t&...It is a story of love, adventure & human values, the fugitive Jew in a Christian skin, under constant threat of exposure, precariously maintaining his false identity in a tiny rural community. finally we see Hellreich the penniless refugee, still supported by his faithful Irena, rebuilding his shattered career in Australia - a chapter of heartbreaking difficulties & heartwarming satisfaction....as gripping and human a story as any told about this tragic period in the history of mans inhumanity to man.

I couldnt put it down. That it is told without bitterness and rancour makes it all the more powerful ... simply yet eloquently written. - Barry Cohen (former Australian Minister for the Arts, Heritage and the Environment)... incredible faith and courage ...

one of the most amazing stories to emerge from the wreckage and despair of the Holocaust. - L E Freeman in The Newcastle HeraldPublishers Note: My father, the author, passed from this world of natural causes in 2008 after what he described as a very interesting life. My hope in publishing his story is to document what happened to one man during these dark times & let him tell his story to all of you & not let it die with him.

My father did not speak of his war years until I was 8, after many requests. It took him a lot longer to agree to write his story for the public. He was a modest man & did not think his story on the Holocausts edges would be of interest, as per his Preface. All the Holocaust books I have read are valuable not for their literary merit but for the story they tell of barbarism, heroism, selfless help by others while endangering their own lives, & the wonderful strength & purity of th
