Krysia is the memoir of a young girl's family during the invasion of Poland during WW2. Krystyna or Krysia Mihulka who is now in her 80's, tells of her journey when she was nine years old during the German and Russian invasion of Poland. Krysia paints the picture of deportation, hiding under cover and finally being deported for two years with her mother and younger brother to a  Soviet farm in Kazakhstan until freedom was won.

This memoir was a powerful read and I would have have had this book read in a night if I didn't have to get up so early the next day, yes it's that good! Reading books like this gives you a better understanding of what really happened to certain people in certain countries that history books don't show at all. Even now, I'm still thinking about everything that Krysia and her family went through during that time and you can only pray that nothing like that would ever happen again.

Thank You to Krystyna Mihulka for sharing your story with the world so people can have a better understanding of what really happened!

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley!
