Until she was nine, Janina David led a sheltered life with her prosperous Jewish family in Poland. One year later they were all on the verge of starvation, sharing a small room in the Warsaw ghetto.
When it became clear that none of them were likely to survive, David was smuggled out to live with family friends. When their home became too dangerous, she was sent with false identity papers to a catholic convent, where she lived in constant fear of being discovered.
In this memoir David records the events around her through the eyes of a child, lonely and terrified, yet her determination to survive reads like a testament to the resilience of the human spirit.
