Destined to Live
Sabina Wolanski with Diana Bagnall
One Woman's War, Life, Loves Remembered. Sabina Wolanski was 12 years old when her home town in Poland was invaded by Nazis. In her diary, along with innocent adolescent longings she recorded what happened next: the humiliations and terrors the murder of her beloved family and the startling story of her own survival. Leaving Europe after the war Sabina forged a new life in Australia. In May 2005 when Germany opened its controversial Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe in Berlin Sabina was chosen to speak as the voice of the six million dead. In her speech she noted that although the Holocaust had taken everything she valued it had also taught her that hatred and discrimination are doomed to fail.
