Description

Part of a new Holocaust remembrance series of important testimonies and memoirs from the unique collections of Yad Vashem, the World Holocaust Remembrance Centre. 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, the oldest of their seven children, try to escape, survive and report to the world on the atrocities that were taking place. For three years Anna lived in constant fear of discovery. She 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 special 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.
