When Rachel and her husband, Abraham, escape from the Siemiatycze ghetto one cold winter night in 1942 with their four-year-old daughter, Chana, they are desperate for refuge. Turned away by the one person they thought they could depend on, they are forced to ask for help from strangers and acquaintances. During the twenty-one months that they are hidden by courageous farmers, Rachel and Abraham fiercely protect Chana, who is taught never to cry, never to make a sound. After liberation, as Rachel and Abraham are haunted by the past, Chana?s childhood truly begins. Too young then to fully understand what they have survived, it is only later in life that Chana realizes she must preserve her family?s legacy and honor those who rescued them. Told from the perspective of both mother and daughter, Fragments of Hope brings light into a world of darkness.

Rachel Lisogurski was born in the village of Grodzisk in 1911 and lived in the nearby town of Siemiatycze, Poland, during the war. After the war, Rachel, her husband, Abraham, and their daughter, Chana, spent two and a half years in displaced persons camps in Italy before immigrating to Montreal, Canada, in May 1948. In 1967, Rachel wrote her memoir, Out of the Depths. In 1985, after her husband passed away, Rachel moved to Israel to join Chana and her family. There, Chana arranged for her mother?s memoir to be self-published. Rachel Lisogurski passed away in Israel in 1998.
