Rose Blooms Again
A Survivor’s Story
A stirring story
of inner transformation, survival and a young Jewish girl’s
journey into womanhood during the darkest days of the Holocaust.
charged memoir begins with recollections of joyous times
in prewar Poland. Born into wealth rare for
Polish Jewry, the author recalls a girlhood of privilege, and
teen years spent in anticipation of war. Poland falls to Hitler’s
Germany in a swift and savage invasion that would forever alter
young Rose Strzegowski’s fate . . . and that of the world.
With powerful immediacy she shows how her inner strength enabled
her to triumph amid the horrors of the camps, to risk all to
nurse her sick twin sister, to surmount postwar hardships and
finally embrace newfound happiness. It is an unforgettable
story of historic adversity filtered through the prism of personal
courage, faith and growth.
