    Once in a while a book comes along that makes you want to be a better person This is a moving , beautifully written novel based on the true story of Franciszka Halamajowa and her daughter , Helena , who saved Jewish families in Poland during the German occupation It s impossible to describe the unbelievable courage and humanity of these women who risked their lives for others because they believed it was the decent thing to do It is a small book with enormous heart and hope and I cannot re Once in a while a book comes along that makes you want to be a better person This is a moving , beautifully written novel based on the true story of Franciszka Halamajowa and her daughter , Helena , who saved Jewish families in Poland during the German occupation It s impossible to describe the unbelievable courage and humanity of these women who risked their lives for others because they believed it was the decent thing to do It is a small book with enormous heart and hope and I cannot recommend ithighly

    What an amazingstory But this is a fictional account inspired by the courage of Franciszka Halamajowa and her daughter Helena The characters in this novel are fictional but a lot of the events are true with the happenings at the time Its an amazing story but unfortunately I found the writing very childish and disjointed and wasn t sure exactly what was real and what was fictional until the end where the author does explain in her Epilogue Five stars for bringing this story of two remarkab What an amazingstory But this is a fictional account inspired by the courage of Franciszka Halamajowa and her daughter Helena The characters in this novel are fictional but a lot of the events are true with the happenings at the time Its an amazing story but unfortunately I found the writing very childish and disjointed and wasn t sure exactly what was real and what was fictional until the end where the author does explain in her Epilogue Five stars for bringing this story of two remarkable and courageous people to my attention Franciszka and her daughter Helena risk their lives to shelter Jews in Nazi occupied Poland although the penalty for doing so is the death sentence and yet they saved the lives of 15 people in their tiny home I love reading stories of ordinary people in times of war who go above and beyond to make a difference and what a difference these two people made and it is heart warming and inspirational to read stories like this However while this book is a moving story I felt the writing was a bit of a let down Character development was poor and the story felt quite disjointed While I know the characters were fictional I couldn t get a sense of any of them and really felt there could have been so muchto each of these characters The book lacked a sense of time and place also and this was disappointing also.However at the HEART of this novel is a remarkable true story of two amazing and courageous women who put the needs of others before their own and not only did they save 15 people they probably saved hundreds as those 15 people have probably gone on to have families populate the world all because of Franciszka and Helena A remarkable story simply told

    Having read this inspiring book in one sitting, I am overwhelmed with emotion and hope This fictional account of a true story of two women s heroic actions to save two Jewish families and a German deserter during WWII restores and deepens my belief that there are angels among us And I m thankful that on a whim I picked up this short, poetically written novel because I ve needed to have my faith restored with all the turmoil and tragedy in our world I ve read so many Holocaust novels, but this Having read this inspiring book in one sitting, I am overwhelmed with emotion and hope This fictional account of a true story of two women s heroic actions to save two Jewish families and a German deserter during WWII restores and deepens my belief that there are angels among us And I m thankful that on a whim I picked up this short, poetically written novel because I ve needed to have my faith restored with all the turmoil and tragedy in our world I ve read so many Holocaust novels, but this tiny book captures the horror, fear, bravery, moral decency and love that the people who endured this horrific war experienced..at least in this one corner of Sokal, Poland where 6000 Jews perished As humans we are capable of unimaginable savage cruelty but as this book demonstratesalso great love, bravery and sacrifice for our fellow human beings.There is a plaque and a tree at the Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem honoring Franciszka Halamajowa and her daughter, Helena Those who helped the Jews escape execution during the Holocaust are recognized as the Righteous among Nations indeed they were.My deepest wish is that this novel shows up on every required reading list in our schools

    I read this book in two sittings but I made myself take a couple of days before attempting to review It is one of the hardest ratings I ve ever had to make a decision on not the written review itself, I m simply saying the number of stars it deserves I m going to call a spade a spade here If I was an English Prof and I was grading this manuscript for a creative writing class I think I might have sent it back for many, many revisions As it is written I would have had to assume the intended I read this book in two sittings but I made myself take a couple of days before attempting to review It is one of the hardest ratings I ve ever had to make a decision on not the written review itself, I m simply saying the number of stars it deserves I m going to call a spade a spade here If I was an English Prof and I was grading this manuscript for a creative writing class I think I might have sent it back for many, many revisions As it is written I would have had to assume the intended target was lower middle grade students instead of adults However, I would have been puzzled because the themes and how they were handled was definitely not entirely suitable for impressionable middle grade students Maybe US 7th grade and above would be ok with some of the scenes However, the language and sentence structure is honestly about a 5th grade level and even then not a very challenging read again not content So, you re probably wondering why I gave it 5 stars then aren t you I ll also say here I d have given it 100 if I could have I do not know for certain the reason the author wrote this book with such simple mechanics and language I ve seen the argument since finishing that it was purposely simplistic to let the story shine and not the words However, I read the book with the mindset that the author is not really an author by trade or training but she so desperately wanted to tell a story After finishing this book I learned my assumptions were probably accurate The author simply felt compelled to write a fictionalized story based an a true story and get it into reader s hands The true life story behind this book touched her profoundly and she tried her hand at writing a book I say kudos to her If you read this with that mindset you will see just how beautiful the story is I was so touched during one particular scene that I had to close the book for the night otherwise this could easily have been read in one setting I don t want to spoil that scene for others but I ll just say the incident that sucked the breath from my lungs did so despite years and years of reading Holocaust and or Genocide based literature I have extremely thick skin and have seen and lived through a lot but I thank our dear God in heaven that I cannot truly imagine what it was like to be in that mother s situation I m crying just typing this I plan to have my 14 year old son read this book As much as his father and I would like him to love reading, he simply does not He will only read when he s forced and that s certainly not fun for any of us He just finished a elective history class in his school that was all about the Holocaust In that class they were required to readThe Hiding Placeby Corrie ten Boom I have not read the book so I can not be sure of it s suitability for him or how it compares with this book but I can say HE struggled and hated it I wonder if this book would have been a better for him Perhaps all of the kids of course, I really think the kids should have read both The only sense worthy criticism I could get out of him was thatThe Hiding Placefelt too preachy I laughed because this is came from a child in Christian school But then after reading My Mother s Secret it dawned on me that perhaps this story that was not faith based would actually have been a better fit for him It showed situations straightforward as they were There are characters who are not necessarily Christian but still doing what God would want them to do The same characters were sometimes shown to be doing things God would not necessarily want for them There were flawed characters There were devout characters There was divorce The was a bit of romance It also touched on the fact that evil walks in many forms too Maybe that s what he needed He needed to see the goodness in the world is not only done by Christians, and he needed to be able to relate to the characters in the book he is reading Okjust read this book Overlook the simplicity Just absorb the meaning Here is one quote that grabbed me I always thought that courageous people were those who were not afraid Meeting Franciszka and her daughter, I realize that courageous people are afraid like everyone else They just act despite the fear 5 4.13

    This work of fiction is based on the true story of Franciszka Halamaj her daughter Helena, both Polish Catholics, who hid 2 Jewish families and 1 German soldier on their small farm The writing is almost sophomoric which, in my opinion, is in sharp contrast to the subject matter The books is told in 4 points of view Helena who helps her mother hide these families, Bronek head of his family hidden in the pigsty, Mikolai a young boy hiding w his parents in the cellar, and Vilheim a German This work of fiction is based on the true story of Franciszka Halamaj her daughter Helena, both Polish Catholics, who hid 2 Jewish families and 1 German soldier on their small farm The writing is almost sophomoric which, in my opinion, is in sharp contrast to the subject matter The books is told in 4 points of view Helena who helps her mother hide these families, Bronek head of his family hidden in the pigsty, Mikolai a young boy hiding w his parents in the cellar, and Vilheim a German soldier who defected

    With simple prose, J.L Witterrick has written a stunning novel of bravery and sacrifice during World War II Franciszka is a Polish cook with two children married to a brutal Ukrainian seduced by Hitler s promise of prosperity She leaves him to move back to Poland to live with her children, selling eggs to the locals Like a diary, we watch the horror of the war unfold and new characters are introduced There is a poor Jewish family, a wealthy Jewish doctor and his family as well as a war weary With simple prose, J.L Witterrick has written a stunning novel of bravery and sacrifice during World War II Franciszka is a Polish cook with two children married to a brutal Ukrainian seduced by Hitler s promise of prosperity She leaves him to move back to Poland to live with her children, selling eggs to the locals Like a diary, we watch the horror of the war unfold and new characters are introduced There is a poor Jewish family, a wealthy Jewish doctor and his family as well as a war weary German soldier All their stories intersect, their destinies knitted together as their lives are saved by the courage of a Franciszka and her daughter Helena This is a book that teaches us that heroes come in all sizes from heartbreakingly thoughtful children, to women who willing to sacrifice their futures as well as their very lives, to stay true their values A quick but intense read, this book captures the spirit of Righteous among the Nations and is a testimony to their courage J.L Witterrick is a master of understatement, with a deft hand on knowing that her spare, but intense chapters tell a profound story of the human spirit Well done

    Having grown up listening to stories of the Holocaust and the things that people had to do to escape the brutality of the Nazis, when I was approached to review this book I knew I had to There s something that is amazingly powerful and beautiful about the stories that come out of this moment in history.I must say that this book follows suits of all the other stories I ve heard or read It is written in a way that seems to flow through the mind as you read the words It is beautifully crafted.I Having grown up listening to stories of the Holocaust and the things that people had to do to escape the brutality of the Nazis, when I was approached to review this book I knew I had to There s something that is amazingly powerful and beautiful about the stories that come out of this moment in history.I must say that this book follows suits of all the other stories I ve heard or read It is written in a way that seems to flow through the mind as you read the words It is beautifully crafted.I love how you getthan one perspective allowing you to see the different stories and ways things are looked at differently This is a great book to get older children and YAs introduced into the nit and grit that was part of the Holocaust But that doesn t mean that is should be limited to youths I m 28 and I enjoyed it.This is a powerful, amazing story that everyone that has any interest in the Holocaust should read It s beautiful

    A wonderful true story of a woman and her daughter who harboured Jewish families at their farmhouse during Poland s occupation from Nazi Germany The lady, and her daughter were not fictional The story however is somewhat fictionalized You d think from the reviews this book should be, or was the top book of 2013 It s a heartwarming story, has no unique aspect from literally thousands of stories along this topic in print, and is written by a woman, who writes like she is a young teen Chapte A wonderful true story of a woman and her daughter who harboured Jewish families at their farmhouse during Poland s occupation from Nazi Germany The lady, and her daughter were not fictional The story however is somewhat fictionalized You d think from the reviews this book should be, or was the top book of 2013 It s a heartwarming story, has no unique aspect from literally thousands of stories along this topic in print, and is written by a woman, who writes like she is a young teen Chapters are short, choppy, and simplistic The style of writing suggests the writer has no experience writing, except perhaps children s books So disappointing Character development was almost non existent I see either an author who truly wanted to write this book because it resonated from her heart, or someone who wanted to make some money I doubt we ll hear from her again
