"The author tells of his father, Mundek Lukawiecki, who led a Jewish partisan group in the forests of southern Galicia. They operated under the umbrella of the Polish underground movement the Armia Krajowa (AK). Mundek's group was an AK hit squad that assassinated German soldiers, as well as Polish and Ukrainian Nazi collaborators. The group also sabotaged Nazi operations and attacked strategic German targets such as fuel trains and military installations. At the end of the war, Mundek enlisted in the Polish Communist Secret Police (UB), where he continued to exact revenge on Nazi collaborators. In 1946, after the UB discovered that he was simultaneously supporting the Israeli underground Etzel in Palestine by sending them Jewish fighters, he was forced to flee Poland. He arrived in Israel in 1948"--Amazon. ; Based on archival documents, survivors' testimonies, interviews, and other sources, Lavee relates the story of his father, Edmund (Mundek) Łukawiecki, who was born in 1921 in Lvov. During the Soviet occupation of Eastern Galicia, his Polish friend, Józef Kulpa, involved him in activities of the Polish underground. Under the German occupation, Łukawiecki, helped by Kulpa, managed to form a special partisan hit squad, consisting mainly of Jews and affiliated with the Armia Krajowa. This squad conducted acts of sabotage and military operations in the area between Lublin and Lvov, fighting against both the German occupiers and Ukrainian nationalists. In June 1944 Łukawiecki's squad met and unified with the advancing Red Army units. After the liberation of Poland Łukawiecki worked for the Urząd Bezpieczeństwa, the Polish communist-controlled political police, and in 1946 he left Poland for the Land of Israel, where he changed his name to Moshe Lavee. Relates, also, the story of Chana Bern, the author's mother. As a prisoner of the Lubaczów ghetto, she was raped by the chief of the Ukrainian Auxiliary Police there. She managed to killed him, fled back to the ghetto, and then joined Łukawiecki's squad. Bern died in 1990, and Łukawiecki-Lavee in 2004.
