Alicia: My Story
Bantam Books, 1988 - 356 Seiten
Her name is Alicia. She was thirteen when she began saving the lives of people she did not know--while fleeing the Nazis through war-ravaged Poland. Her family cruelly wrenched from her. Alicia rescued other Jews from the Gestapo, led them to safe hideouts, and lent them her courage and hope. Even the sight of her mother's brutal murder could not quash this remarkable child's faith in human goodness--or her determination to prevail against overwhelming odds.

helped him with the patients in his hospital. "Are you the Dr. Feldman who
worked with my uncle?" "Yes, yes, of course. Please, Alicia, can we go
somewhere and talk?
