"The author has strikingly portrayed the relationship between a hidden Jewish young woman and her rescuers. Her theological and psychological ruminations are heartbreaking and simultaneously portray her own coping skills and resilience. Time is running out and the story must be told before it is too late."—Alan L. Berger, Florida Atlantic University

"A young woman questions the morality of her survival in this stunning Holocaust testimony by Sylvia Lederman. How can she love her family while leaving them behind? How can she accept help from other families at the risk of their lives? How can she be true to herself while living under a false identity? In the end, there is no purpose but surviving to tell the story, and this she does in graceful and shattering prose."—Lorrie Greenhouse Gardella, University of Saint Joseph, Connecticut

  Shevas Promise

  Sylvia Lederman worked in the garment industry and spent the rest of her life in Queens, New York. She was a member of the Lodzier Society and the Rohatyn Society (presently in the Ukraine), both fellowships of people from her native Poland.
