Sabina: In the Eye of the Storm is written by Bella Kuligowska Zucker. This is a Holocaust memoir which has been taken from the original, checked for facts, and finally published. It is the extraordinary story of a fifteen-year-old Jewish girl who escaped from the ghetto using only her own ingenuity and managed to find places to stay and people to help her while avoiding all the SS officers who were around at that time. Her travels took her to Germany where she worked on a farm under the guise o ...more

Different angle

It was interesting to see a woman's survival during the holocaust through a different lens. This is a fascinating story. I just wish the story had ended happily where it began. The life of a lone survivor is surely sorrowful and I'm glad Bella flourished eventually. Great book!

Compelling tale of one woman's journey thru the Holocaust

A survivors story of living through a horrible time of our history that should never be forgotten and should be a lesson for us all.

A story of great courage and survival,


I lived among Bella's family, felt the anxiety and fears she ecper i enced, the anguish at not knowing the date of every member of her family.

A well written book is a first hand account of what happened to a family of Polish Jews through WWII.
Sabina demonstrated great courage which kept her moving in search of a safe place throughout the war. As a teenager she quickly developed good instincts and tenacity that kept her alive.

Incredible story

This most incredible story was well told and simple and it broke my heart. The photo when she returned to Poland in 1998 looked like Ohio! It could be anywhere and I am feeling that this could happen again...

Amazing story of survival.

I meant to read it for a few minutes. I couldn’t put it down. It inspired me to keep striving toward my dreams.

Another very good one on the Holocaust. It just better showed the ignorance and idiocy of the Nazi's, but also the spirit of people who were determined to live, no matter what.
