Abstract: By the bearest of margins the Skorecki family survived Nazi Poland. This was due to the heroism and resourcefulness of the parents. They were the only one or one of the few families that survived the Warsaw ghetto intact and stayed together throughout the war passing on the Christian side. This is a thrilling and frightening story. It is backed up by solid research. Author Larry Powell went to great lengths to mine the existing archives of each scrap of information bearing on the narrative. He embedded the Skorecki's odyssey in a warp of historical facts and contemporaneous documents. The reader will learn a great deal of detailed information about the Holocaust from this book. David Duke's anti-semitism sparked Anne Skorecki Levy's present day journey into her past. The story of Duke's politics of hate frames this Holocaust account. The relevance of Powell's book is as present as this morning's headlines.
