Description
In the Shadow of the Swastika tells the story of a Polish Jew whose harrowing wartime adventures reached their amazing end when he received the American Bronze Star from Gen. Mark Clark in June, 1946.

Wygoda kept a journal during the time he spent in the mountains of northern Italy, where he rose from commanding a platoon to leading a division of nearly twenty-five hundred partisans that ultimately liberated the city of Savona. In 1993, eleven years after his death, his children began their quest to share their father's journal and the rest of his story with a wider audience.

Unique among Holocaust memoirs, In the Shadow of the Swastika celebrates the memory of a man who received decorations from three Western powers and who, years later, was honored post-humously by the Italian city he helped to liberate.
