Using diaries she kept as a teenager, Janina Bauman describes the horror of the siege and surrender of Warsaw in 1939. Along with a curfew came raids, beatings and enforced moves into what the Nazis designated as the Jewish ghetto. Relatives and friends disappeared and food became scarce. Forever on the move to avoid deportation to the camps, escape to the "Aryan" side was followed by years of hiding, terror and finally hope.
