Dear Library Patrons, The mission of NYPL is to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen our communities. Government support only pays for a portion of our work, so we rely on you to help - from stocking our shelves with amazing books, expanding our e-Book selection, classes, events, or even making free WiFi accessible to all. We are trying to raise $500,000 by December 31: an ambitious goal, but one that will fund incredible learning and reading in our community.

Where Are We Going?
"In this action-packed memoir that reads like a novel, the author graphically recounts how she and her family narrowly escaped from Krakow, Poland, in 1939, just ahead of the advancing Nazi invaders, when the author was only three years old. After surviving imprisonment in a Siberian Gulag work camp and near-death illness and starvation on their courageous and harrowing three-and-a-half-year odyssey through Russia, Uzbekistan, Persia, and the Nazi submarine-infested Indian Ocean, they finally secured freedom in Palestine in 1943"--Cover.
