"At the Mercy of Strangers" is an important addition to Holocaust literature for a number of reasons. It is a document about the survival of a woman and her two children. As a firsthand account of survival during the Holocaust, it is worth reading. It also documents how Polish friends, acquaintances, and even strangers helped ensure the survival of one Jewish family during the bleak days of the Holocaust. These acts of bravery by individuals and families, at grave risk to themselves, are fully documented here, with names, incidents, and places.
