The story of Gerda Weissmann Klein's six-year ordeal as a victim of Nazi cruelty. It takes the reader on a terrifying journey from the author's comfortable home in the Polish town of Bielitz to her survival and liberation by American troops - one of whom was to become her husband - in Volary, Czechoslovakia, in 1945. Gerda's childhood was shattered when the Nazi's marched into Poland in 1939. Although the Weissmann's were permitted to live on for a while in the basement of their home, they were eventually separated and sent to German labour camps. Over the next few years, Gerda experienced the slow stripping away of all but her life. By the end of the war she had lost her parents, brother, home, possessions and community; even the firends she had made in the labour camps were dead. Despite her experiences, Gerda Klein conveys a strength of spirit and faith in humanity, demonstrating how hatred can be overcome.

How we describe the condition of our books

We are very proud of the condition of the books we sell (please read our testimonials to find out more!)

New: Exactly as it says.

As New: Pretty much new but shows small signs of having been read; inside it will be clean without any inscriptions or stamps; might contain a remainder mark.

Very Good: Might have some creases on the spine; no hard cracks; maybe slight forward lean and short inscription inside; perhaps very minor bumping on the corners of the book; inside clean but the page edges might be slightly yellowed.

Good: A few creases on the spine, perhaps a forward lean, bumping on corners or shelfwear; maybe an inscription inside or some shelfwear or a small tear or two on the dustjacket; inside clean but page edges might be somewhat yellowed.

Fair: In overall good condition, might have a severe forward lean to the spine, an inscription, bumping to corners; one or two folds on the covers and yellowed pages; in exceptional cases these books might contain some library stamps and stickers or have neat sticky tape which was used to fix a short, closed tear.

Poor: We rarely sell poor condition books, unless the books are in demand and difficult to find in a better condition. Poor condition books are still perfect for a good read, all pages will be intact and none threatening to fall out; most probably a reading copy only.
