Summary "Written during World War II, Justyna's Narrative is a compelling account of the Krakow Jewish resistance. From February through April 1943, Gusta Davidson Draenger (aka "Justyna") composed the narrative on scraps of paper smuggled into her prison cell. Between sessions of torture and interrogation at the hands of the Gestapo, she recorded the activities and spiritual aspirations of a clandestine group of young Jewish idealists who forged documents, acquired weapons, and committed acts of defiance against the Nazis." --Book Jacket
