Summary"When faced with the prospect of deportation to a ghetto or concentration camp, many Jews tried to find ways to hide. Whether in the attic of a neighbour's house, in a cave on a hilltop, or within the stacks of hay in a barn, those in hiding often had to change their identity and conceal their Jewish roots. Hiding meant going hungry for weeks or months, being left in the cold, and living in constant fear of being discovered. But due to the kindness of strangers or the quick thinking of the children in these stories, they lived to tell their tales." —Publisher
