We appreciate your feedback. September 5, Imprint: Jews -- Poland -- Fiction. Families -- Poland -- History -- 20th century. Holocaust, Jewish -- Poland -- Fiction. Summary Inspired by a true story, My Mother's Secret is a profound, captivating, and ultimately uplifting tale intertwining the lives of two Jewish families in hiding from the Nazis, a fleeing German soldier, and the mother and daughter who teamed up to save them. Praise for My Mother's Secret 'A touching, humane work that celebrates the power of love, the attributes of leadership, and the importance of family.
Excerpts This book is fictional, but it was inspired by the true story of Franciszka Halamajowa, who with her daughter saved the lives of fifteen Jews in Poland during the Second World War.
She also hid a young German soldier in her attic at the same time. Her son died while transporting a wagon full of supplies to partisan Jews hiding in the forest. Before the war, there were six thousand Jews in Sokal, Poland. Only thirty survived the war and half of those because of one Polish woman, Franciszka. I believe that all of us, like Franciszka, have within us the potential to be great.
Sometimes we coast through life without this potential surfacing because life has been easy on us.

When we have much to lose, but still choose to do the right thing, we uncover the nobility that is within all of us. To endure what is unbearable and to do it with grace, that is how we know that we have arrived. They were unable to save their infant son who might give their hiding away. A doctor and his wife and son, the doctor who believed his position would save him, sadly he was wrong. The risks that good people took in order to save innocent victims of birth and heritage. The genocide of so many Jews never ceases to amaze, shock, cause me to shudder with sadness.
The voices in this book were very powerful. This book was inspired by the true story of Franciszka Halamajowa, who, with her daughter, saved the lives of fifteen Jews in Poland during the Second World War. She also hid a young German soldier in her attic at the same time.

Before the war, there were six thousand Jews in Sokal, Poland. Only thirty survived the war and half of those did so because of Franciszka. Witterick has fictionalized a harrowing and beautiful story of human kindness. Is this based on a true story? It sounds very emotional.
