Publisher's Summary

In 1939, the Germans invaded the town of Lodz, Poland, and moved the Jewish population into a small part of the city called a ghetto. As the war progressed, 270,000 people were forced to settle in the ghetto under impossible conditions.
At the end of the war, there were about 800 survivors. Of those who survived, only twelve were children. This is the story of one of the twelve.

Deeply moving.

One often hears the phrase "could not put it down" I have to confess in this case it was 100% true.
Once I had started I had to complete this deeply moving and yet simply told account of a child surviving and trying to make sense of a world that she and everyone she knew had been thrust into by the insanity of Hitler .
