Evitchka: A True Story of Survival, Hope & Love

Before World War Il, there were two hundred Jewish children in the small town of Humenné, Czechoslovakia. After the war, there were six.

Evitchka was one of them.

Her survival is a testament to the luck, determination, and resiliency of her parents and the bravery of a young Catholic couple. Her story crosses continents and spans decades, including the unlikely chance to repay an unpayable debt.
