Product description

This deeply moving true story tells of two sisters living through a little-known period of history: the Jewish pogroms between the World Wars. The story begins in Poland in 1921, when Devorah and her sister escape the most terrible night of their lives: the bloody Night of the Burning, when the Jews in their village are attacked and driven out. Rescued by philanthropist Isaac Ochberg, the sisters begin an incredible journey to safety, from Europe to South Africa, and from despair to hope. Poignant and beautifully written, this true story is a fascinating story of real history, vividly depicting events which eventually led to the Holocaust. It is also a heartfelt tale of two sisters in search of a home, and their struggle to find acceptance and, ultimately, a family.
