My Endless War

Sonia Kaplan recounts her terrible experiences a Jewish woman living under the Nazi regime, which included hunger, degradation, loneliness, and the most inhuman act of Nazi brutality: the murder of her family. She spent much of the war in hiding and was eventually helped by Russian partisans whom she lived with in the forests of Eastern Europe. She survived and was able to immigrate to the United States where she started her new life of hope and happiness. Though her experiences during the war have always made her life challenging, but with three children, six grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren, she has come to realize her struggle was worth it.
