This book was heavy and hard to read at times but so worth it. I’ve read a lot of books about the horrors that happened to the Jewish people by the Nazis, but this was the first I read about what happened to those who helped to resist racism and also ended up in camps. The nine women depicted in this book were extraordinary and I’m glad they was being recognized as heroes who suffered for the fight for freedom. I loved that the largest focus of this story was how these 9 women who escaped from a death march and made their way across the front lines to find freedom for themselves. Their bravery, compassion, and resilience was inspiring. I liked that the author not only had her connection to one of the women who was her aunt but she tracked down family for the other women and the reader got to see at least a glimpse of what happened after they achieved their freedom.
