Publisher's Summary

My name is Hanna. I am 15. I am Latvian. I live with my mother and grandmother. My father is missing, taken by the Russians. I have a boyfriend, and I'm training to be a dancer.
But none of that is important any more. Because the Nazis have arrived, and I am a Jew. And as far as they are concerned, that is all that matters. This is my story.

Harrowing but compelling

The fictional account of the murder of the Jews in Riga, Latvia by the Nazis and their Latvian collaborators from 1941-4.
Historical detail (but with superfluous and highly improbable teenage love story).
Narrator irritating at times as does not know Yiddish or Hebrew.
Why read it? Because it is a rare accesable account of this terrible time and place. It is worth putting up with the recording's drawbacks in order to hear he story.
