Who Would Believe Us?
A Memoir of a Jewish-American Family and the Holocaust
by Grace G. Atwood

When the Rogaczewsky sisters crossed the Atlantic Ocean to Ellis Island in 1906, they were fleeing the horrors of the anti-Jewish pogroms in Poland that forced many people to take a chance on a new land. Their Rogaczewsky family members were not so lucky; they were forced to remain in the Old Country and face hatred, violence, and even death. Inspired by a document that revealed the names of relatives who survived the trip to America and those who had to stay behind, Who Would Believe Us? is a gripping family history told against the backdrop of generations of discrimination and war. Written with the help of historical documents, letters, interviews, and personal experience, this story explores how one exceptional family navigated prejudice and tragedy in both their homeland and in America with strength and resilience.
