A mother tells her daughter of the day by day horrors she endured during the Holocaust and how the thought of her daughter's safety kept her alive through incredible privation and suffering. For the daughter, it must be a comforting explanation of what happened and why she was seemingly abandoned. I found the book engrossing and hard to put down.

As a documentary filmmaker, Ive collaborated on a number of Holocaust-related works, and have listened in shock and awe to nearly one hundred survivors as they recountedoften, for the first timetheir individual and familial stories of tragedy and transcendence. Jafa Wallets Bitter Freedom, which I first read as an untitled manuscript in the late 1970s, is one of the most compelling first-person accounts by a Holocaust survivor that I have ever encountered. She evokes scenes which have resonated inside my head for nearly thirty years, and its publication is an important event not only for those interested in the Holocaust, but for everyone seeking illumination into the complexities and mysteries of what it means to be human.

Bitter Freedom is both a compelling and Inspirational memoir. Jafa Wallach, a mother and survivor of the holocaust wrote this as a letter to her daughter, Rena. I can't find the words to express the horrors Jafa and her family endured in Nazi occupied Poland. Jafa and her husband, as well as her two brother's spent 22 months living in a hole they dug themselves beneath a workshop--owned by a man (Jozio) who risked the lives of his family as well as his own to keep they're secret.

This hole was dark and damp with barely enough fresh air, nor room enough to even stand. They had to share this very small space with insects and rodents. Jozio brought them food and water when he could, but it was barely enough to sustain them. Their courage and strength to survive was remarkable. Holding onto the faith they would be reunited with their young daughter.

The heartbreaking events that led up to their time living underground were painful to read as well. Entire families being wiped out all around them. These atrocities should never be forgotten. Jafa Wallach's determination and spirit was truly inspiring. This story is not one I shall soon forget.

Written not long after the war and published years later, this is a memoir written to the daughter of Jafa Wallach to describe to her what she and her husband endured during World War II. It was extremely personal and unflinching in its detail of their trials. This is the first account I've read about a family in hiding during the war. I was shocked and saddened to read about the extent of their hardship and fear, especially during the long 22 months of living crammed in a damp, insect and rodent-infested hole, only tall enough to kneel in, dug in the floor of a workshop. They were at the complete mercy of Jozia, a hero, a Polish villager who smuggled them food and kept their existence a secret while forced to work as a mechanic for the Gestapo.

This book is also a testament to the power of the love of parents for their children. This love was strong enough to keep Jafa and her husband from giving up in the most intolerable situation imaginable. In addition to the description of their experiences during the war, it is a fascinating look at life for Jewish Holocaust survivors in the years after the war. Their hardships didn't end after their liberation and they spent years struggling to find a safe and welcoming place to settle.

The entire book was excellent, including the Afterword by the Wallach's daughter Rena, in which she shared her memories of the Holocaust, as a young girl in hiding without her parents. What I'll remember most, though, is their hero Jozia. He's now my hero, too. I don't know if in his situation, I would have been as kind-hearted, caring and loyal as he was. He risked he and his family's life to care for a Jewish family, despite Poland's deep-seated antisemitism and the hateful propaganda of the Nazis, in the face of extreme danger. Every bit of food and water he worked so hard to find for the Wallachs was done under the watchful eye of his suspicious (but in the end good-hearted) wife and neighbors. He is indeed Righteous Among the Nations.

This book is an excellent description of the lives of Holocaust Survivors who endured the war in hiding, and their efforts to rebuild their lives after the war. Read this book!

Bitter Freedom is such a fitting title for this touching story written by a Jewish mother to her daughter explaining what happened during the time that she was forced to send her child away to live with others for nearly 2 years, in order to keep her 4 year old child alive. My grandparents and father lived in Europe thru World War II, so I feel a strong pull to read first hand accounts during that time, and have read countless memories (20+) of those who survived the Holocaust. This book was one I could not put down- as the story pulled me in from the start. While the story is written in a "matter of fact" style without much emotion or complaining I felt that conveyed how broken and numb the author had become. In any case, it is truly an amazing story of the will to survive because of the love the parents had for their child and the hope of making a life together after the war.

Mrs. Wallach wrote this book as a memoir/letter to her daughter shortly after the war ended. She wanted to record what occurred while events were fresh in her mind. Her manuscript sat in her closet for many years "because others were not willing to listen to our experiences." Her description of the hole she lived in with her husband and 2 adult brothers, for two years, was beyond belief. So clear was her depiction that I could almost smell the wet dirt and sweat and itch from the lice infestation. The hole in the ground was so small, they were not even able stand up for the entire time in hiding. I pray that many more survivors will find their voices by writing about their Holocaust experiences...they must not keep silent just "because people don't want to listen."

A mother's account of the family history before, during and after the Holocaust. In an attempt to help her daughter remember the events of the Holocaust, Jafa Wallach got up early in the morning and wrote them down. This was meant to be a keepsake for her daughter, but should be read by everyone. The life the family lived before the Holocaust, during the Holocaust and after the Holocaust are three separate lives. The strength Jafa had to survive the unthinkable horrors she faced are a testament to her love for her daughter. It is so hard to imagine the 22 months she shared a hole under a cellar floor with 3 then 4 other family members. The life and prejudice that followed the liberation were hard. The time of fear, prejudice, despair and torture during the time of Hitler changed so many people. The way Jews were still treated after the war was sad and heartbreaking. Thanks to the sacrifices of some people who risked everything, Jafa and her family survived. This book is a tribute to all of them.
