KIRKUS REVIEW

We've included this moving record of terrorism under this section because it is the story of a 16-year old girl, and of three years pent in the walled-off city within a city, the Warsaw ghetto. In spite of the youth and experiences of the author, it is told with surprising restraint, -- personal, detailed, direct. Here is the story of the Polish Jews, their persecution by Poles as well as Nazi, the conditions of starvation, forced labor, plgue, pogrom. It is the story of Mary Berg's family and friends, of the work they did to keep up forbidden education and entertainment, of the means they evolved merely to stay alive. Finally, her mother's American citizenship procured them release, only to find themselves imprisoned during Warsaw's bloodiest days, and held again in a French internment camp...Here is an authentic factual picture of what young people of German-occupied territory are experiencing.
