Being Krystyna – A Story of Survival in WWII

cover_processedI’m delighted to announce the upcoming release of my non-fiction novella Being Krystyna which will be on sale tomorrow, 11th November, 2016. Published as an eBook by Dilliebooks, it tells the story of Polish Jew Krystyna Porsz and how, as a young woman, she survived the Holocaust during WWII.


In 2012 when young Polish immigrant Agnieszka visits fellow countrywoman Krystyna in a Peterborough care home for the first time, she thinks it a simple act of kindness. However, the meeting proves to be the beginning of a life-changing experience.

Krystyna’s stories about the past are not memories of the good old days but recollections of war-ravaged Europe: The Warsaw Ghetto, Pawiak Prison, Ravensbrück Concentration Camp, and a death march to freedom.

The losses and ordeals Krystyna suffered and what she had to do to survive are horrors Agnieszka must confront when she volunteers to be Krystyna’s biographer.

Will Agnieszka be able to keep her promise to tell the story, and, in this harrowing memoir of survival, what is the message for us today?

You can still pre-order the book :

Why not join me at the launch party on facebook on Friday 11th November – 6pm-10pm GMT – where fellow authors are welcome to entertain us with stories of their own. 🙂
