KIRKUS REVIEW

With the Eichmann trial in the headlines, Mrs. Kuchler-Silberman's story, laced with tragedy but culminating in joyous reward, should inspire a wide audience. A jew in Poland, she miraculously managed to pass as a Catholic, avoided romantic notice as well as that of the Gestapo, and worked first on a farm and then in the city as a governess to two girls. After the war, in Cracow, she became the ""mother"" of some 100 emotionally and physically hesitate children with whom she made the exodus from Poland to France and finally to Israel. Her story is a heartening account.
