Henry: A Polish Swimmer’s True Story of Friendship from Auschwitz to America

By Katrina Shawver

Biography & memoir, General non-fiction | Paperback, Hardback, eBook


This debut book follows the true story of a Polish swimmer who survived three years in Auschwitz and Buchenwald during WWII and then lived the American dream. When Katrina Shawver met 85-year-old Henry Zguda he possessed an exceptional memory as well as a surprising cache of original documents and photos. Couched in the interview style of "Tuesdays with Morrie," this bridge to history and view of the Holocaust through Polish eyes is supported by extensive research and features more than 75 original photos and rare German documents. Henry reminds us that no single class of people was safe from Hitler's reach or imprisonment, and no country suffered more under Hitler and Stalin than Poland. If you’re a discerning adult looking for an intelligent read, this book is for you.
