The despair and triumph of one woman's survival is closely examined in Colette Waddell's intimate portrait of Nina Morecki, a Jewish Pole who narrowly escaped execution during World War II, and challenged Nazi authority. The reader is exposed to a unique relationship that emerges between Nina and the author, and a message of tolerance and hope resonates when life is seen "Through the Eyes of a Survivor."

A student of history and anthropology,Colette Waddell graduated with highest honors from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and went on to write the life story of her dear friend, Nina Morecki. Step-mother to four children, equistrian, musician and flegling rock climber, Colette now divides her time between homes in Santa Barbara and along Oregon's Rogue River. Ms. Waddell is currently writing the life history of a Navajo family.Review:
"Colette Waddell is an extremely talented writer. She successfully paints a picture of words that tells Nina's life. It is an honor to read...this story of humor,which testifies to the character of Nina. It should be required reading for everyone. For only when we come to understand what happened during the Holocaust will we be certain it never happens again." --Debra Gaynor: Reader Views, March 2007
