This book is like hearing your grandmother tell you a story, though this one is a difficult story to hear. Told in a conversational tone, this is the story of Millie Werber as told to Eve Keller, who wrote the book. Millie had kept to herself what happened to her and her husband Heniek, a Jewish policeman in a wartime ghetto in Poland, throughout the years, not even telling it to her two grown children. What happened to her, and the thousands of Jewish people like her, is something no one should have to go through.

As a 15-year old girl, in Radom, Poland, her family made the difficult decision for her to go to work in an armaments factory for the Nazis. She never saw her mother again. The work was physically demanding and dangerous for someone so tiny and young. This was just the beginning of Millie's experiences during WWII. Along the way she met Heniek and they were married. All she has left of him is a photo of the two of them and their two gold wedding rings. She managed to hold onto these treasures through Auschwitz and the end of the war and liberation.
