Dancing through darkness when love and dreams survived a Nazi death camp : based on the diary and memories of Selma (Saartje Wijnberg) Engel / Ann Markham Walsh
- Nashville : Dunham Books, 2013
Based on the recorded memories, diary and love letters of Saartje Wijnberg (Selma Wijnberg Engel) and Chaim Engel, Dancing Through Darkness is a true story that exists only because of the strength of love and the power of dreams. From Poland and Holland, and with no common language, Saartje and Chaim met and fell in love when forced to dance together for the entertainment of the Nazi SS guards at Sobibor Death Camp in Poland in April, 1943. As their love grew, in defiance of the brutality that surrounded them, they promised each other they would survive. Their dream of living to share a normal.
