The Warsaw orphan [large print] / Kelly Rimmer.

Rimmer, Kelly, (author.).


Set during World War II in Poland, a novel based on real-life heroes follows Elzbieta Rabinek over the course of the war, her involvement with the Resistance, and her love for a young man imprisoned in the Jewish ghetto whose passion leads him to fight in the Warsaw Uprising.
"In the spring of 1942, young Elzbieta Rabinek is aware of the growing discord just beyond the courtyard of her comfortable Warsaw home. She has no fondness for the Germans who patrol her streets and impose their curfews. But in befriending Sara, a nurse who shares her apartment floor, Elzbieta makes a discovery that propels her into a dangerous world of deception and heroism. Using Sara's credentials to smuggle children out of the ghetto brings Elzbieta face-to-face with the reality of the war behind its walls, putting Elzbieta and her family in harm's way until one violent act threatens to destroy their chance at freedom."-- Back cover.
