Description
 
In February 1941, Wanda Półtawska was arrested by the Gestapo. She was nineteen years old. Charged with aiding and abetting the resistance movement—a heinous crime in Nazi-occupied Poland—she was sent to the notorious Ravensbrück concentration camp.

Originally written nearly fifty years ago, this powerful story is an enduring testament to the courage of the human spirit.

And I Am Afraid of My Dreams is Półtawska’s account of the four years spent in the camp, where the prospect of death, whether from starvation, exhaustion, or summary execution, was a daily reality. Wanda was used as one o the camp’s  “guinea pigs” and became a victim of cruel medical experimentation by Nazi doctors. Many of her friends died or were left with horrific physical and psychological injuries as a result of these experiments. Wanda bravely faced each day and pledged to become a doctor if she ever got out alive.

She was also a close friend and advisor to Pope John Paul II, serving on the Papal Commission on Family Matters. Married with four daughters, Półtawska resides in her native Poland.
