Jack and Rochelle grew up in Poland in different towns and economically different families so other than knowing who each other was, never associated with each other. But, through their experiences of being Jews during the German occupation they were thrown together in the forests of Poland where they met up again and began their lives together.
Their story is told in their own words, and edited by there son Lawrence Sutin. The story of each of their separate trials in work camps and the escapes are compelling. The fact that they met up was amazing, but the circumstances of them meeting is miraculous. It shows that even in the most terrible situations there is sweetness, love and miracles.
This is a current picture of Jack and Rochelle-still in love!
This book about the resistance groups during WWII is inspiring and shows the strength of the human spirit. I highly recommend this book and I will let you know about "The Bielsky Brothers" after I read it, however, my daughter, Elizabeth Jane (we named her after the Bennet sisters), who has read both, loved them both also.
