Invisible Jews: Surviving the Holocaust in Poland by Eddie Bielawski

Invisible Jews: Surviving the Holocaust in Poland by Eddie Bielawski

The author was just a toddler when his family began hiding in various places in an attempt to avoid the Nazis that had invaded Poland as well as Polish neighbors all too willing to turn in a Jew. They hid in holes dug in the ground, they hid in barns, they hid behind a false wall built to look like it had always been there. Amazingly, his entire family survived the war and the Holocaust by becoming invisible. The book is pretty short and reads fast. It tells his memories of those years with fill in from his sister and other family members who were older than he was. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys Holocaust survivor stories. This is the first one I’ve read that didn’t involve being sent to a concentration camp so I found it very interesting.
