Reprint. This translation originally published: 2002.

Roma Ligocka has lived multiple lives since the 1950s years - artist, theatrical designer, bohemian nomad, political activist, wife, mother - but she was first a girl from the Krakow ghetto.

It was only when she saw the little girl in the red coat in the film of "Schindler's List" that she recognised her own childhood and realised the extent of her failure to come to terms with the anguish of it.This powerful memoir revisits the horror of her early years and reveals how far its effects have reached throughout her life.

Leading an apparently successful life, she has nonetheless often been at the mercy of depressions.

Now, after 50 years, she is able to write about honestly examining the scars of a traumatic childhood and getting past sorrow while still acknowledging the truth of the past.
