Saying Goodbye to Warsaw

Saying Goodbye to Warsaw

Author(s): Michael Cargill

Location(s): Warsaw

Genre(s): Fiction, Historical

Era(s): 1940



Like any girl who is loved by her family, Abigail Nussbaum loves to chase butterflies, enjoys lying on her back looking for shapes in the clouds, and happily teaches young children to make daisy chains. In the eyes of certain people, however, Abigail has committed a heinous crime. The year is 1940: the place is Poland: Abigail happens to be Jewish. Along with half a million other Jews, Abigail and her family are evicted from their home and forced to live in the bombed out ruins of Warsaw, the Polish capital. Although a handful decide to fight back, is the uprising strong enough to save Abigail’s spirit?
