Anna : A Teenager on the Run (Paperback) (Anna Podgajecki)
about this item
Anna Podgajecki was born in Korzec, on the Polish–Russian border. As life for the Jews became steadily worse, Anna’s parents insisted that she try to escape, survive and report to the world the atrocities that were taking place. Anna wandered from place to place and found work as a translator, a housekeeper and finally a nurse on the Russian front. Through luck, good timing, personal charm, a talent for languages and her beauty, she was able to avoid death. Anna’s reflections on her escape and survival are both remarkable and touching, arousing our curiosity about the human instinct to survive, despite all odds.
