OF THE 30,000 RIGA JEWS ALIVE BEFORE THE WAR, ONLY TWO WOMEN SURVIVED; ONE OF THEM FRIDA MICHELSON, A SEAMSTRESS BY PROFESSION--TELLS THE AUTHENTIC STORY OF THE EVENTS THAT OCCURRED IN HER NATIVE TOWN. FOR YEARS SHE HID IN THE FORESTS AND AMONG LATVIAN PEASANTS AND CITY DWELLERS--MEMBERS OF THE SEVEN DAY ADVENTISTS SECT.
