The Diary of a Young Russian Girl
Tania is only thirteen years old when Russia is invaded by Nazi troops. After enduring months of starvation, she is taken from her family and transported to a labour camp in Germany. For three years Tania has to work in the fields and factories of the Third Reich. Throughout the hardship she is kept going by the thought that her mother and sister might still be alive. Tatiana Vassilieva tells her own wartime story simply and movingly in a book which pays tribute to the resilience of the human spirit.
