chris c's summary:
Yet another sad tale. Alicia Appleman-Jurman. Part one, Alicia survives prison and death, 12 year old Alicia was taken to Chortkov prison, for calling a Nazi a devil. She was beaten and became ill, it turns out the Nazis were giving her water laced with typhoid ( something else on the menu ) One day a Nazi kicked her, she did not respond so the Nazi thought she was dead. She was thrown onto a pile of corpses, then a jew that was supposed to bury her found she was still alive, so he sneaked her back to the ghetto. Part two Alicia survives killing squads. Alicia was eventually recaptured and taken to some woods to be shot, suddenly Alicias friend, Milek grabbed a gun off one of the guards and started shooting " RUN RUN," shouted Milek, so Alicia ran into the woods. Part three Alicia survives in the countryside. Luckily Alicia bumped into a man called Wujciu in the woods he said she could stay at his house. Eventually Alicia was caught again! Then the Nazis were marching Alicia somewhere else to be shot, Alicia had experience of this so she hung at the back of the line, then she managed to run away! She hid in the hollow of a tree, and then escaped to a forest. Book called Alicias story.
