Monica is a granddaughter and niece of survivors. She grew up in a home where the past and the present were intertwined.  What was it like to be a granddaughter and niece to survivors?  The story that Monica shares is of her aunt and grandmother who survived the war because of their fortitude, shrewdness and, perhaps more importantly, luck. The story starts before the war, describing a large and loving family and goes through the years of the war chronicling how difficult it was to survive. The story also includes Monica’s grandfather whose life and family interacted with Monica’s grandmother and her family. The story also touches upon a few upstanders who saved Monica’s grandmother’s life at great expense to their own safety
