"Heroism took many forms during the Holocaust. The ordinary decency of a few people--exhibited in the most difficult circumstances--was a flickering flame of light in a world of all-consuming darkness. This moving, almost exuberant memoir of one young Norwegian woman who worked with the Quakers from 1939 to 1945, gives us an outsider's glimpse into the transit camps and the deportation trains that was the world of Jews in France during the Shoah. She guides us through the religious integrity and human solidarity that led her to side with the victims, and not with their oppressors. One is grateful for such a memoir, more grateful for such a person." - Micheal Berenbaum
