She was a beautiful and happy young woman who lived a fairytale life. Shurka, her beloved husband, and their two small children lived in a pretty house in a village in Poland, surrounded by a little garden with lilies. This was their life and nothing could harm it, or so they thought….
World War II broke out and though the happy family thought the Germans would never reach their idyllic village, they quickly understood they were wrong and their happiness came to a brutal end. The family had to flee their house and find shelter in a neighboring ghetto where they realized that the Gestapo was taking Jews away on trucks every night, and they were never seen again.
The family decided to escape into the deep, dark forest. There, surrounded by animals, they knew that this was their only chance to get away from the real beasts. They had no idea what would await them, but they knew that doing nothing was not an option if they wanted to survive.
Note From The Author
“I first heard the story of Shurka when I was 20 years old. She was a childhood friend of my mother, and when she immigrated to Israel, she sat and told us her story and we all listened. I remember telling myself, this story is a masterpiece. This is a story worthy of a book that must be written. This is a story of a simple,regular woman who lived in some Polish village, whose whole dream was to raise her babies, milk the cows, and curl up under a heavy quilt with her husband in their little hut. The war came and destroyed everything, the Germans came and she understood that it was all over, but she did not let her spirit wither, the war did not destroy that strongest instinct of all, the love of life that pulsed within her.”
