"I was only twelve-and-a-half years old when the shadow of the Third Reich fell across Europe.

I could not even begin to imagine the extent of the horrors that were soon to follow"--back cover.
Author Notes

<b>Mala Kacenberg</b> (nee Szorer) was born in Tarnogrod, Poland in 1927. As World War II broke out, Mala found herself having to fend for herself at the tender age of 12. Surviving by her wits, courage and the help of a guardian angel (her cat Malach), she was the sole survivor of her family. Mala immigrated to London with other Jewish refugees after the war, where she raised a large beautiful family, living long enough to be blessed with many grandchildren.
