A detailed, invaluable first-hand narrative of Holocaust survival in Poland. With help from her daughter Yvona, Dana Fast tells the story of her incredible childhood experiences-life among the horrors of the Warsaw ghetto, studying at a forbidden secret school there, escape to relatives, in hiding passing as a Catholic girl in the countryside, under a new identity at a Catholic orphanage, then living, now under suspicion from regular Poles, with a woman relative claiming German ethnic status and the accompanying privileges. Through this series of name and identity shifts, Dana Fast emerges, a strong, feisty, fearless adolescent girl. A precious and important book.

Susan Lynn Meyer, Sidney Taylor Honor Award-winning author of BLACK RADISHES and SKATING WITH THE STATUE OF LIBERTY.

"This well-written and deeply affecting memoir is extraordinarily timely-not only as a lesson in how suddenly and violently the world as we know it can collapse, but as a beautiful reminder of the bravery and compassion abiding in our fellow man." - Niki Kourofsky, Senior Editor, Adirondack Life Magazine
