Baba Schwartz

Baba Schwartz’s story began before the Holocaust could have been imagined enjoying life as a spirited girl in a warm and loving Jewish family . This idyll was shattered in 1944 when the Nazis transported the 3000 Jews of her town to Auschwitz. Her father died in the gas chambers but her mother and her two sisters survived, eventually escaping the final death march to be liberated by the  Russian army. Her book The May Beetles was written many years ago and has thankfully been resurrected.
