Only this afternoon Papa had warned us of the German threat to Poland.
Now the Luftwaffe’s bombs had succeeded in convincing us that everything was about to change.
Kaminsky loves gymnastics, her best friend Eva, Elza’s chicken soup
with dumplings and reading. But in September 1939 the happy life that
Hanna has always known disappears.
The Nazis have invaded Poland
and are herding all Jews into ghettos in the cities. Hanna’s family is
forced into hiding in the countryside. For a while it seems they are
safe, but hiding from the Germans means trusting others. Rounded up by
the SS, Hanna and her family are sent to the Warsaw Ghetto where they
must use whatever skills they have to survive.
