The Girl From a Reading Primer

When author Marian Falski met little Alina Margolis, she made Alina a character in Poland’s most popular reading primer. After serving as a nurse in the Warsaw Ghetto, Alina married Marek Edelman, a leader in the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. With her children, she left Poland in 1968 for France, and became an early participant in Doctors Without Borders. The reading primer’s pages illustrate this portrait of a remarkable woman.
