A witness account from the Holocaust. The story of a teenage girl in the city of Tarnow, Poland, who was arrested for helping her friends. Sent by the Nazi occupier to Auschwitz-Birkenau and survived three years of concentration camp life.
A true story never told before. A story of courage in the midst of evil and a story of survival.
For me to be able to write her story I need to raise funds to focus full time on this book. Ela is today 92 years old, so time is of the essence. I need to quit my day job and concentrate on interviewing her over the next three months and also to travel to the places where she has been during the war.
Any contribution to this project will make a huge difference for me. It’s very important to me that I can write her story as soon as possible. I thank each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart for the smallest of contribution.
I will write in Swedish, but any funds that exceeds my goal will be used for translation of the book.
