Ruth Jacobsen spent her first childhood in Germany. It ended one night when she was six years old and hiding in terror as she watched people being thrown from windows. It was Kristallnacht, the Night of Breaking Glass.

When she was eight, the Germans invaded Holland.

In this beautiful book- a collection of words, photos, and collages, the author shares her experiences as a hidden Jewish child of the Holocaust. Her dedication: "Dedicated to my mother and father. They survived the war but could not speak about it. I found my voice and have tried to speak for them as well as myself," says it all. A haunting, powerful, memorable, and important book.

I can't lie, I didn't finish this book. I found it fascinating but it was heart-breaking. I had just finished another book about the liberation, and got this book from the library as a companion. This book just had a very depressing overtone with no small ray of hope or happiness even though the family survived. It's a great book, with lots of important historical value, but I just couldn't do it.
