Summary

Here There Is No Why was the infamous Dr. Joseph Mengele’s answer to Roma, the author, and to millions of Jewish victims of the Holocaust. 

Written to fulfill a promise made in the darkest moment of human history, this simple and eloquent story is unique in that it spans the geography of the Nazi’s Final Solution. 

Ruchama (Roma in Polish), the teenage daughter of a journalist, relays to us the experiences of a schoolgirl and her classmates under the German-occupied Warsaw Ghetto. She is a witness and participant in the Warsaw Ghetto uprising. After the Nazis smoke her out of hiding, she bravely faces the reality of the gas chambers and concentration camps in Poland and Germany. 

Originally written in Polish, this is an eloquent and unforgettable account of survival.
