ResQgeek: it is an important part of history. I added the copy that I read to the local OBCZ and it got picked up extremely quickly, I hope the finder enjoys it as much as I did.

Hello to everyone who has responded,
I spoke to Nina Morecki, the subject of this book and very much alive Holocaust survivor. She was elated to learn of your comments and enthusiasm concerning our work. You have no idea how much this lifts her spirits, particularly since she has been recouperating from a recent fall. My 87 year-old friend wanted me to personally thank you all for your interest in her story, and, if it is acceptable proceedure for the "Confessions" staff, both Nina and I would both be willing to sign the winner's copy.
I will continue to keep track of this site, and may I urge you all to learn as much as you can about this very important part of world history.
With much love,
Colette Waddell
Author - "Through the Eyes of a Survivor"
