Summary"In June 1942, when twelve-year-old Gerta is deported with her parents to the Theresienstadt ghetto—the Nazis' deceptive 'model Jewish settlement'—her family helps her cope with the surrounding devastation. Later, alone in Auschwitz, Gerta is determined to survive the unbearable. Her intrepid spirit and keen observation guides her anew through post-war communism to freedom in Canada." —Publisher
