OF THE 30,000 JEWS LIVING IN RIGA, LATVIA, ONLY 2 2OMEN SURVIVED--A WRENCHING STORY OF ONE WOMAN'S WILL TO LIVE. RUMBULI FOREST WAS TO RIGA, THE CAPITAL OF LATVIA, WHAT BABI YAR WAS TO KIEV AND PONARY WAS TO VILNA: A BLOODY MASSACRE SITE WHERE THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN, WOMEN, AND THE ELDERLY WERE SLAUGHTERED BY THE NAZI EINSATZGRUPPEN. OF THE 30,000 RIGA JEWS ALIVE BEFORE THE WAR, ONLY TWO WOMEN SURVIVED; ONE OF THEM FRIDA MICHELSON, A SEAMSTRESS BY PROFESSION--TELLS THE AUTHENTIC STORY OF THE EVENTS THAT OCCURRED IN HER NATIVE TOWN. FOR YEARS SHE HID IN THE FORESTS AND AMONG LATVIAN PEASANTS AND CITY DWELLERS--MEMBERS OF THE SEVEN DAY ADVENTISTS SECT. OUT OF THEIR DEVOTION TO GOD, THEY WERE WILLING TO RISK THEIR LIVES TO SAVE HER, RATHER THAN BETRAY THEIR FAITH. FRIDA MICHELSON TELLS HER INCREDIBLE STORY IN A TERSE AND POIGNANT LANGUAGE. THIS DOCUMENT OF MORAL COURAGE AND HEROISM, OF LIMITLESS ENDURANCE AND STAMINA CANNOT BE READ WITHOUT DEEP EMOTION.
