Rose Zar flees the Piotrkow ghetto to live under false papers as an Aryan Pole. Tough, quick and gutsy, she outwits and outbluffs those who would turn her in. Rose''s ironic picture of Nazi domesticity and her genuine friendship with the colonel''s wife make this a unique book from beginning to end.
From the Publisher:
Rose Zar was 19 years old when the Nazis invaded her native Poland. Her father urged her to save herself by hiding "in the mouth of the wolf"--or within the enemy itself. She managed to obtain false papers, secretly changing her identity and surviving the Holocaust as maid and nanny for a Nazi SS colonel.
Ruszka Guterman, at age 18, knows that to be a Jew in Poland in 1942 is a death warrant. Her father knows this too, and convinces Ruska and her brother Benek to flee the ghetto and try to find safe haven in one of the larger cities in Poland. Luckily, Ruszka has learned that to show fear is to give herself away. Bold, brash, and defiant, Ruszka becomes Wanda Gajda, working for an SS Kommandant, and remains safe in the mouth of the wolf.


"Tough, quick, and gutsy, [Rose Zar] outwits and outbluffs those who would turn her in...a unique book from beginning to end."
