In February 1941, Wanda Poltawska was arrested by the Gestapo. She was nineteen years old. Charged with aiding and abetting the resistance movement a heinous crime in Nazi-occupied Poland she was sent to the notorious Ravensbruck concentration camp. And I Am Afraid of My Dreams is Poltawska's account of the four years spent in the camp, where the prospect of death, whether from starvation, exhaustion, or summary execution, was a daily reality. Wanda was used as one of the camps guinea pigs and became a victim of cruel medical experimentation by Nazi doctors. Many of her friends died or were left with horrific physical and psychological injuries as a result of these experiments. Wanda bravely faced each day and pledged to become a doctor if she ever got out alive. Originally written nearly fifty years ago, this powerful story is an enduring testament to the courage of the human spirit.
