    Helen K., a survivor of the Warsaw ghetto, Majdanek, and Auschwitz relates her wartime experiences and describes her postwar reunion with her husband, whom she had married in the ghetto at the age of sixteen. She emphasizes her determination to survive as an act of defiance against Hitler, a decision she reached when her younger brother died in her arms in the cattle car en route to Majdanek. The theme of resistance, both passive and active, recurs throughout her testimony. Ms. K. concludes on a pessimistic note, wondering whether "it was worth it" in view of the continuing suffering and inhumanity in the world.
