A fairly typical Holocaust memoir, which you can read online at Questia if you have a subscription or get a one-day free trial. Malvina was a 17-year-old student of biology at the university in Krakow when the Nazis invaded in 1939. She fled to Lvov in Russian-occupied Poland, then went back to Krakow in order to avoid deportation to Siberia. She wound up in the relatively little-known Plaszow Concentration Camp and then Bergen-Belsen, which is where Anne Frank died. Her parents had died before the war. One brother and one sister perished in the Holocaust, but three of her other sisters survived.

Malvina writes about her experiences in detail, but the account is rather dry. I'd recommend this for Holocaust buffs who want to know about the Krakow/Plaszow experience in particular. (And no, she was not one of Schindler's Jews; in fact, he isn't even mentioned in this story, although she does give credit to the Gentiles who helped her and her siblings survive.) ( )
