SummaryBen Mandelkern was only 23 when the Nazis invaded his native Poland in September 1939. Like other Polish Jews, Ben and his young wife, Helena, came face to face with the evil of Nazism as their families and friends were murdered by the SS. Ben himself was captured, but in an incredible display of clear-headedness and courage managed to escape from the train transporting him to Treblinka. Separated from Helena he stayed one step ahead of their persecutors, participating in the Warsaw Ghetto uprising before finally being liberated by the Russians in 1945. Free at last, he struggled desperately to reunite with his beloved wife.
