In this compelling personal memoir of courage and endurance, Dr. Mina Deutsch reveals her memories of living in the shadow of the Holocaust. Mina Kimmel left her home town in Poland at age 13 to pursue an education. Settling in Czechoslovakia Mina met Leon Deutsch, a fellow medical student who would become her husband. The young couple’s happy life, however, was soon torn apart by the rise of the Nazi regime. Mina’s Story follows their journey eastward through Nazi-occupied Europe. Finally liberated by the Russians after having to hide in an underground bunker, Dr. Deutsch’s narrative continues in Canada, where Mina and Leon again have to struggle to establish themselves in a new and foreign country. Mina’s Story is a memorial to all those who died under Nazi persecution, a record of the many atrocities suffered, and, finally, an example of heroism, perseverance, and the indestructible will to live.
