The book is explained about how Hitler had a preconceived friendship with the Soviet Union, only to stab the Soviets in the back. It was then that the Soviets invaded Poland and took the Jewish people out of Europe as they fought the Germans in World War II. The Soviets sent hundreds of Polish Jewish people by way of railroad--traveling for months in cattle cars-- arriving at their final destination for however long that be--- in the barren land of Siberia.
This story is real and personal, as the author of the book wrote about her childhood experience prior to becoming a Polish Jewish prisoner of war-- taken away from all she knew, to how she survived her exsistance in Siberia along with everyone else. She includes their community's environment(s) as it was the essence of every one's survival.
I recommend this well written book for American children (especially), as we have never gone through an experience of this liking....such as the liking of those who were European Jews who did nothing wrong but to sustain sacrifice after sacrifice because of who they were, though they did nothing wrong to deserve such treatment and to be so unaware of what their futures held.
