After decades of concealing the full account of her experiences, Holocaust survivor Beatrice Sonders (Basia Gadzuik) writes her story of survival and courage in the face of the ultimate horrors. Born in 1924 and growing up in the small town of David-Horodok, a village in eastern Poland, Basia spent her childhood surrounded by family, traditions, and a Jewish education that rebirthed the Hebrew language. But when the Germans and Ukrainians obliterated David-Horodok in 1941, killing off all Jewish men in the town, everything changed. Left to fend for themselves, Basia and her mother fled 100 kilometers south, driven into the infamous Sarny ghetto. Tragedy struck again as the Germans liquidated the ghetto in 1942, and Basia went into the first of many hiding places. After years of running from soldiers, changing her identity, and hiding her faith, Basia emerged as a survivor - shepherding the rebirth of her faith and her family in America.

Author Biography

Beatrice Sonders (Basia Gadzuik), ninety-three years old, is a survivor of the Holocaust and the atrocities that befell her hometown of David-Horodok. She aspires for the miraculous story of her survival to be known for generations to come. Bea lives in West Bloomfield, Michigan and is especially proud of her three daughters, ten grandchildren and seventeen great-grandchildren. David Salama is one of Beatrice's ten grandchildren and lives in Huntington Woods, Michigan with his wife Pauline and their three sons: Elliot, Ari, and Oliver. He feels beyond fortunate to have his grandmother in his life as an adult, and has always been inspired by her story of survival. Through interviews and genealogical research, David has helped write Beatrice's account into a memoir for future generations.
