About the Book

So many memories I would like to forget. But they are vividly etched in my mind, and impossible to erase.

During World War II, a young Polish American girl named Cecylia was imprisoned in a Nazi labor camp. After more than sixty years, with the sincere encouragement from her friends and family, she has decided to share her extraordinary account. Hers is a story that centers around a little-known aspect of the war, and it is told here from a fresh perspective, that of a young girl facing unimaginable horror—and unexpected hope—as a prisoner in a Nazi labor camp.

“This book is a must-read. …We will all face adversity in life, and this book inspires us to live our lives and face our problems with strength and dignity. When you read this book, you will be inspired to live your life bravely like Cecylia did under the worst of circumstances. Everyone should read this book—it will help you live a better life.”

—Elizabeth Cohen, MPH, CNN Senior Medical Correspondent

About the Author

Cecylia Ziobro was born to an American mother living in Poland. After the war, she and her mother settled in New York City. Cecylia married and moved to New England, where she raised a family and worked as an accountant. She lives in Florida with her husband and is dedicated to educating new generations about her experiences.

Robert Thibault, Cecylia’s son and coauthor, has done extensive research on the topic of Nazi slave labor during World War II. He has been invited to speak on the topic at numerous veterans, cultural, and educational events throughout the United States. Trapped in a Nightmare, his first book, was chosen as required reading in schools around the country. Robert lives in Atlanta, Georgia, with his wife and two daughters.
