Product Description

A 2021 National Jewish Book Award Finalist
One of Smithsonian Magazine's Best History Books of 2021

An uplifting tale, suffused with a karmic righteousness that is, at times, exhilarating.
--Wall Street Journal

A gripping narrative that reads like a page turning thriller novel. --NPR

In the summer of 1942, the Rabinowitz family narrowly escaped the Nazi ghetto in their Polish town by fleeing to the forbidding Bialowieza Forest. They miraculously survived two years in the woods--through brutal winters, Typhus outbreaks, and merciless Nazi raids--until they were liberated by the Red Army in 1944. After the war they trekked across the Alps into Italy where they settled as refugees before eventually immigrating to the United States.

During the first ghetto massacre, Miriam Rabinowitz rescued a young boy named Philip by pretending he was her son. Nearly a decade later, a chance encounter at a wedding in Brooklyn would lead Philip to find the woman who saved him. And to discover her daughter Ruth was the love of his life.

From a little-known chapter of Holocaust history, one family's inspiring true story.
