Despite Poland fighting for its life, the country fell to the stronger German army, but did not surrender. Amidst the oppression, enforced segregation and bloodshed, a powerful resistance network prevailed, in which Szybicki himself was engaged. One fateful night during the Warsaw uprising, by the end of August 1944, he was among a group of people who were rounded up and transported to Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp. Szybicki relates the horrors of his time there as he recalls them. His post-liberation story however, is one of success and defiance in the face of a traumatic past. As he moved from Sweden (where he met his late wife) to Spain and on to Switzerland, developing his career as a celebrated telecommunications and computing expert, his life was not without fresh sorrows, but is nevertheless a testament to the resilience of the human spirit. To Hope or Die is a survivors personal account of one of the twentieth centurys single greatest evils, as well as telling the story of the life, cruelly cut short, of a girl he could not forget.
