How is it possible for a family of four Jews (and others) to live in a rat-infested sewer for 14 months? This book will show you how. Literally against all odds, this family makes it through-- during WWII--and it will break your heart. Against a backdrop of Nazi madness, one family, committed to family and to staying alive, makes it out of the unspeakable horror of a sewer into the daylight of freedom. No one can read this and be unaffected. The star of the show? A child. A child who treasured her lovely green sweater, knitted by her grandmother. This sweater is now on display at a national Holocaust Museum in memory of the children who survived the Holocaust.
