L’ivi, Ukraine

In 1943, with Lvov’s 150,000 Jews having been exiled, killed or forced into ghettos and facing extermination, a group of Polish Jews daringly sought refuge in the city’s sewer system. The last surviving member of this group, Krystyna Chiger, shares one of the most intimate, harrowing, and ultimately triumphant tales of survival to emerge from the Holocaust. The Girl in the Green Sweater is Chiger’s first-person account of the fourteen months she spent with her family in the fetid, underground severs of Lvov. Source:http://www.mappler.com/livi
