This gripping account of nine survivors of the Holocaust deserves a wide audience. The Jewish children featured here ranged in age from 4 to 17 when they began to experience the horrors of the Nazi regime. Young Luncia and Sarah were wedged into precarious hiding places in Poland. Herbert was on a crowded refugee ship that could find no safe haven, even in France. Starving Markus and Walter found the strength to endure years of forced labor. George and his little sister Ursula were part of Kindertransport, unfortunately to Holland. Mathei became a young partisan in the Polish underground, while Jack survived a death march to Germany. A must for all libraries. Maureen Griffin, Researcher, Winthrop, MA
