Descripción

The extraordinary story of Stefania Podgorska, a Polish teenager who chose bravery and humanity by hiding thirteen Jews in her attic during WWII—from #1 New York Times bestselling author Sharon Cameron.

Also includes a recorded conversation with author Sharon Cameron and reader Beata Poźniak, discussing Beata's decades long friendship with Stefania Podgórska and the legacy of the Podgórska sisters.

One knock at the door, and Stefania has a choice to make...

It is 1943, and for four years, sixteen-year-old Stefania has been working for the Diamant family in their grocery store in Przemsyl, Poland, singing her way into their lives and hearts. She has even made a promise to one of their sons, Izio—a betrothal they must keep secret since she is Catholic and the Diamants are Jewish.

But everything changes when the German army invades Przemsyl. The Diamants are forced into the ghetto, and Stefania is alone in an occupied city, the only one left to care for Helena, her six-year-old sister. And then comes the knock at the door. Izio's brother Max has jumped from the train headed to a death camp. Stefania and Helena make the extraordinary decision to hide Max, and eventually twelve more Jews. Then they must wait, every day, for the next knock at the door, the one that will mean death. When the knock finally comes, it is two Nazi officers, requisitioning Stefania's house for the German army.
With two Nazis below, thirteen hidden Jews above, and a little sister by her side, Stefania has one more excruciating choice to make.

    Wow, is really all I can say about this story. I have read many books about this time period (WW 2-Holocaust), but I never get tired of reading the stories of heroes. Ordinary people who risked their lives and put the lives of others first in extraordinary ways. This story kept me up at night. I laughed and cried and wondered ( how is Stefania going to get out of this challenge?) Excellent book. I am grateful to learn about Stefa’s and Helna’s story.

    An amazing story of an ordinary young woman deciding to risk her life to save others, made all that more powerful because it is heavily based on a true story and mostly the dialogue and small details are the fictional parts. I loved the added interview between the narrator and author at the end of this, as they both had met the real woman this story is about and talk about how much bringing her story to the public meant. Super cool and a moving Holocaust story.

    This book was absolutely amazing. What a great story of two brave sisters, risking their lives daily for a hunted people.
