Born in Budapest in 1920, Kathy Diosy was a young Jewish woman being educated in Austria when the Anschluss occurred. From then on her life was dominated by not only by Hitler's war but by his murderous campaign against the Jews. Her father and a great many of her relatives were executed during the war; she herself spent much time separated from family, surviving through a combination of determination, good friends and good fortune. Eventually emigrating to Australia post-war, her deep anger against Hitler dissipated when she came to understand the forgiveness God had for her in Jesus Christ.

The book is not a full biography, as the foreword admits, but there is enough told of her past to enable us to understand the significance of her conversion. Having just recently met Kathy Diosy herself, this book has given me a privileged insight into a person who has been through much and come out wonderfully transformed.

The book is easy enough to read, but the language does not shine. Kel has done a competent job, and I am grateful to have read the story, but I felt at too much of a distance from the rage that he says was building in Kitty (as she was known for much of her life) to appreciate deeply enough the transformation that came to her in Christ. In the end, however, it is her story that is compelling, not the language with which it is told and I do recommend this book.
