There were a scant few thousand (if that many) of this book that were printed. I had to scour the internet 15 years ago to find a copy. Luckily, I found one. It was scarce back then, even when it had no fame or commercial value.
In the front inside cover is a note from the 5 yr. old girl (written by her hand, years later), who was supposed to have been murdered by a bullet, but was ransomed and escaped at the last minute to live another day.
Talk about a treasure! This book is in my bookcase and I wouldn't take anything for it.
It was hard enough to find a copy of this book 15 years ago. To find one now - Nearly impossible.

The true story of an extended Jewish family who hides in caves underground for almost a year to escape death during the Holocaust. This book is referenced in the book titled The secret of Priest’s Grotto by Peter Lane Taylor and Christos Nicola. The woman who writes the book was a member of this family and writes about her experiences. It is not very well-written - it jumps around a lot. But, I admire anyone who, though not a writer, writes their personal story for future generations to read.

This book was written by our neighbor's grandmother and mother. Because it hit so close to home, it was a very powerful and moving story. Also watched the movie version.
