THE UKRAINIAN WOMEN’S ORGANIZATION OF CANADA TORONTO BRANCH
MAKING BOMBS FOR HITLER
In this novel, readers will learn the fate of Lida; kidnapped by the Germans and forced into slave labour — an Osterbeiter. In addition to her other tasks, Lida’s small hands make her the perfect candidate to handle delicate munitions work, so she is sent to a factory that makes bombs. The gruelling work and conditions leave her severely malnourished and emotionally traumatized, but overriding all of this is her concern and determination to find out what happened to her vulnerable younger sister. In this exceptional novel Marsha Forchuk Skrypuch delivers a powerful story of hope and courage in the face of incredible odds.
