Item Description...
Overview
Fanie Stenbock is a young, irrepressible teenage girl, growing up in a small Jewish town in Poland, when the Nazis take over and make everyones life unbearable. By degrees, the community unravels until it is totally destroyed. Only by an endless string of miracles does Fanie survive. She is determined that she will live as a witness to tell all she has seen. No matter how horrible the devastation, including the loss of her family and friends and entire community, her inner resolve and her faith in God keep her hopeful for a better future. Her indomitable spirit cannot be destroyed and her constant goodwill towards others brings the support and intervention she needs to help her survive. Many risk their lives to save hers, including a priest and nuns who hide her in a monastery where she is kept dressed in religious garb to disguise her race and religion. When the war is over, Fanie returns to find her whole town obliterated, with only a small tree remaining on the grounds where her family home had once stood. This tree was one that had been planted by her father on the date of her birth, and beneath its trunk, among the roots, she finds in the dark soil heirlooms that had been hidden by her family who had since perished in the ovens of the Holocaust. She meets Jerzy Gusz, a hero from the Jewish underground, who she finds attractive and exciting. They decide almost immediately to get married as the only way for Fanie to get an exit visa is for them to be a married couple. Fanie and Jerzy eventually find a way to travel to North America where they make a new life for themselves. They take new names Fanny and Jerry Goose and become respected members of their community, with Fanny in particular becoming politically influential. No prime minister or municipal politician would hope to be elected without first coming and getting Fannys blessing. This story, with its many twists and turns, and with the uniqueness of its main character Fanny Goose leaves readers in both tears and laughter. And readers cannot help but acknowledge the intervention of God that spared Fanny and allowed her life to be a blessing to many.

Rising From the Holocaust  Apr 5, 2008
I found this a very encouraging and positive book. Despite all of Fanny's setbacks and difficult trials, she has chosen to keep a positive attitude towards life and people. I believe this has made her so effective in touching the lives of those around her.
