Review: GERTRUDA’S OATH by Ram Oren

Another book read by Lorri from Jew Wishes for the WWII reading challenge was Gertruda’s Oath:  A Child, a Promise, and a Heroic Escape During World War II by Ram Oren.  Here’s an excerpt from her review:

Gertruda’s Oath is a story of not only love and determination, but one of the horrors of the Holocaust told from a unique perspective. It begs us to ponder many issues, such as what we would do under similar circumstances. Would we risk our lives, as Gertruda did, in order to save another individual? What do we owe those we are employed by? What do we owe ourselves in time of great adversity, horror, conflict and devastation? Would we risk everything in order to suffer through the discomfort, in order to save another?

For Gertruda, there was no option.
