Of the 270,000 people forced into the Jewish ghetto in Lodz, Poland by the occupying Germans, Sylvia was one of only 12 children to survive. Based on her experiences and told from her perspective from the age of four through liberation as an eleven-year old in 1945, her astute and detail-filled observations bring the experience of the Jewish ghetto to life. A stunning, poetic recreation of a life lived within the horror that was the Holocaust.
