A Partisan's Memoir: Woman of the Holocaust

A Partisan's Memoir: Woman of the Holocaust


By Faye Schulman


An unforgettable story of heroism, hardship, and resistance...

Faye Schulman was an ordinary teenager when the Nazis invaded her town on the Russian-Polish border. She had a large, loving family, good friends and neighbours, most of whom were lost soon after the horrors of the Holocaust began. But Faye survived, and the photographs she took testify to her experiences and the persecution she witnessed.

Decorated for heroism, Schulman tells an extraordinary story not just of survival but of struggle and resistance against oppression. In this amazing book Schulman talks about escaping from the Nazis, finding a partisan unit and proving her worth. The photographs she took speak eloquently of her experience of surviving for years in the woods with the partisans. There she learned to nurse the ill and wounded, and took up arms against those who had decimated her world.
