Marek has never thought about the Jewish people who live in the Warsaw Ghetto near his homeuntil he helps his stepfather smuggle food and guns through the sewer to sell there. Even then, he does not truly understand what it means to be isolated, persecuted, and faced with almost certain death at the hands of the Nazis. Then Marek meets a Jewish man on the runand, in helping him, is thrust into the middle of an uprising. From the first page, this grabs you like a thriller.Booklist, starred review Subtle, beautifully crafted, altogether compelling.Kirkus Reviews, pointer reviewThis is a story of individual bravery and national shame that highlights just how hopeless was the fate of the Warsaw Jews as they fought alone and heroically against the Nazi war machine.
