Statement of ResponsibilityAdina Blady Szwajger ; translated from the Polish by Tasja Darowska and Danusia Stok.
Summary"At the age of twenty-two, in March 1940, Adina Szwajger began working as a nurse in the Jewish Children's Hospital in the Warsaw Ghetto. She was carefree, on the verge of graduating from medical school and marrying, but her happy life was soon swept away in the course of a coming of age that few of the people she loved survived. Throughout the dark years of the Holocaust, first with the children of the ghetto and later in the Jewish Resistance, she faced decisions and took on responsibilities that test the limits of humanity." —Back cover
