Christoph Fischer Ludwika A Polish Woman's Struggle To Survive In Nazi Germany
Rated 5 Stars

It’s World War II and Ludwika Gierz, a young Polish woman, is forced to leave her family and go to Nazi Germany to work for an SS officer. There, she must walk a tightrope, learning to live as a second-class citizen in a world where one wrong word could spell disaster and every day could be her last. Based on real events, this is a story of hope amid despair, of love amid loss . . . ultimately, it’s one woman’s story of survival. Editorial Review: "This is the best kind of fiction—it’s based on the real life. Ludwika’s story highlights the magnitude of human suffering caused by WWII, transcending multiple generations and many nations. WWII left no one unscarred, and Ludwika's life illustrates this tragic fact. But she also reminds us how bright the human spirit can shine when darkness falls in that unrelenting way it does during wartime. This book was a rollercoaster ride of action and emotion, skilfully told by Mr. Fischer, who brought something fresh and new to a topic about which thousands of stories have already been told."

* spoiler alert ** This is my 4th book from this author. I love his storytelling, this one Ludwika made me hope, long and cry! Such a harsh time to be alive in, during the years of WW2, Ludwika was a strong lady, always urged on by her father's advice, even though he wasn't there. Her life in the camp in Odenburg and Luca! and Onufry what can I say about Luca! I won't give any spoilers, but the story... It's strange how things do pan out in life, if you stay positive! Thank you once again for this wonderful tale. I hope relatives of Richard and Christina are found and soon ...
