This is the story of Peninah Cypkewicz, a Jewish girl who was only seventeen years old when the German army entered Wloclawek, Poland, her hometown on September 14, 1939. For five and a half years, Peninah survived with a combination of initiative and much luck. She was in Częstochowa from the end of 1941 to January 1945, in the ghetto and then the Hasag Labor Camp. After liberation from Nazi rule in January, 1945, Peninah began a seven month journey to Eretz-Yisrael.

Peninah's story is one of tremendous personal courage in the face of despair, persistence in her struggle to survive, and the ultimate reward - a happy family life with her husband, children and grandchildren in Israel.

This book is an excellent companion to Destruction of Częstochowa (Częstochowa, Poland).
