Illustrated by Janet Hamlin
Based on a True Story of the Holocaust
The German army has invaded Poland, occupying nine-year-old Sarah's home town. Forced into a Jewish ghetto behind barbed wire, Sarah and her family struggle to survive. Their only hint of hope is in the rumours of a partisan fighter who rescues Jews from the Nazis, hiding them at his nearby forest camp. Is escape to the forest a foolish dream, or Sarah's one chance to live?
Based on a true story, this powerful novel of the Jewish resistance includes historical background on Tuvia Bielski, the Polish partisan who rescued thousands of Jews.
