- "On a sunny day in July 1941, German soldiers entered Buczacz, spreading a pall of fear. Within a week, savagery reigned as Ukrainian anti-Semites made common cause with the Nazis, beating, robbing, and killing Jews. By the end of August, the dreaded Einsatzgruppen and their collaborators had begun their grisly work. The author's twin brother fell victim to the first of these massacres.
- Her younger brothers were rounded up for transport to a labor camp, but their father, using bribery and personal connections, managed to free them.".
- "Some three and a half years of harrowing existence followed. Deprivation and terror were constant companions as the Bauer family struggled to survive, at times hiding in barns, chicken coops, and open fields, dependent on the assistance - sometimes freely given, but often at a price - of Polish and Ukrainian neighbors, business associates, former employees, and strangers. Finally, brutal violence overtook the Bauer family. The author, by the slenderest margin of fortune, survived.
- Her riveting story graphically recalls one of the darkest chapters in modern history."--BOOK JACKET.
