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.

“A stunning, poetic recreation of a life lived within the horror that was the Holocaust.” (Jane Yolen, author of The Devil’s Arithmetic and Briar Rose)

Amazing! Truly touching
She made it feel as if you were there.You could truly feel all that the author's Aunt went through on an emotional level.. The narration for this was excellent
I love reading books that have the story of someone's real life experiences, brought to reader's in a way that makes us feel as if we share in their journey with them. I found myself anxious,heartbroken, and going through the same emotions that this young survivor felt. Are there miracles? Yes. Did they receive an answer to prayers? I truly believe so and I have no doubt that God knew that through a child, many would be saved and healed of there own wounds through her continued work in life. It is back to the thought that trials in life can either tear you down,or polish you to a refined brilliance. I believe this woman shines brightly for all those she represents.
