5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for all.
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on March 1, 2021
The Light in Hidden Places by Sharon Cameron is one of the most impactful and incredible books I have had the honor of reading.

Stefania Pódgorska is a Catholic Polish girl who leaves her family's rural home to live with her sisters in Przem­syl, Poland. She works for a Jewish family in their store and becomes very close with the Diamant family. The National Socialism Occupation causes Fusia (Stefania) to move in with the family until the Diamant's are forced into one of the Jewish ghettos. Fusia works to help the Diamant family by bringing them food and sneaking it into the ghetto. When she briefly returns to her family home, she finds her mother has been sent to a labor camp and her younger sister Helena (Hella) is left behind - in dire conditions.

Fusia and Hella risk everything to help the one surviving Diamant child (Max), who escapes from a train bound for a labor camp. Throughout the course of her story rents an apartment and hides 13 Jews, in a tiny attic space, from the Nazi's. Fusia's dedication to her thirteen is unwavering, often in the face of horrifying situations - such as being forced to share her apartment with 2 German nurses for over 6 months. Her sister Hella's bravery is well beyond her years and her contributions during the two years in the apartment were pivotal to all of their survival.

Sharon Cameron's research for this true story is admirable and exquisite. Her narrative of Stefania's story is beautifully done, detailing the horror and yet somehow always providing a glimmer of hope. At the end of the story the reader is gifted to photos and notes from Sharon who not only met Stefania and Max, but traveled to Poland with their son, Ed, to exhaustively research Fusia's story. The book is based on Stefania's memoirs, which she never published.

I truly feel this book is a "must read" for everyone. The Holocaust is something that should never be forgotten and all generations need to learn about the atrocities that happened during WWII as well as the epic acts of heroism of those that dared to go against the Nazi regime. I could not put the book down, and yet did not want it to end. As I read the epilogue, I was moved to tears.

I had borrowed this book from my local library for a book club read - and ended up purchasing my own copy because I loved it so much. I recommend this book to anyone who asks me for a good read - and I look forward to my children reading the incredible story about Fusia and Hella.

Once we are able to safely travel internationally again, we will be making a visit to the museum that used to be 3 Tatarska Street in Przem­syl. Thank you Sharon Cameron, from the bottom of my heart for telling Stefania's story.
