Description of the book

Jadwiga Lenartowicz Ryllo, known as Jadzia (Yah'-jah), was a young Polish Catholic physicians at the start of World War II.  Suspected of resistance activities, she was arrested in January of 1944.  For the next fifteen months, she endured three Nazi concentration camps and a forty-two day death march, spending part of this time working as a prisoner-doctor to Jewish slave laborers.  A Polish Docotr in the Nazi Camps follows Jadzia from her childhood and medical training, through her wartime experiences, to her struggles to create a new life in the postwar world.
