Inge Joseph Bleier survived World War II and emigrated to the United States, where she married, raised a family, and worked as a registered nurse who headed the obstetrics and gynecology department at Weiss Memorial Hospital in Chicago. She died in 1983.
"Poignant and powerful, this memoir is the joint effort of the survivor, Inge Joseph Bleier, and her able nephew, David E. Gumpert, who successfully captures the voice and tone of his aunt and weaves her narrative into a moving work. One senses the anticipation of danger, the anguish of the unknown, and the precariousness of life on the run along with the excitement of a girl growing into a woman, of the discovery of first love, and of one's ability to confront a powerful enemy. This is no romanticization of the past or of the mixed blessing of survival but an honest recollection of things past. I recommend this book highly." Michael Berenbaum
