Francisca Halamajowa was banished from Sokal, Poland, when unmasked for her risk taking in hiding Jewish families. As survivors and their children return to the actual pig-sty hideaway with her daughters and grand-daughters, spine chilling revelations come to light. The diary kept during the entire i ncarceration is a document of hope and despair. Survival holds both burdens and gratitude.
