Publisher Comments:

After losing her entire family to the Nazis at age 13, Alicia Appleman-Jurman went on to save the lives of thousands of Jews, offering them her own courage and hope in a time of upheaval and tragedy. Not since The Diary of Anne Frank has a young voice so vividly expressed the capacity for humanity and heroism in the face of Nazi brutality.

Effie, June 23, 2008 (view all comments by Effie)
A true-life account of one woman's Holocaust survival. Barely more than a child, she tells the story of how she lost all of her immediate family, and those who became her adopted family as the war progressed. Sad as the account is, there is so much beauty in the human spirit that she also focuses a truthful lens to, that it isn't as depressing to read about as one would think. It is really a beautiful book--and an important one, because of its eyewitness answer as to why people didn't all immediately flee when they began to see the handwriting on the wall.
