Susie Weksler was only eight when Hitler's forces invaded her city of Vilnius, Lithuania. Soon her family would face the hunger and fear of the Vilnius ghetto, but worse was to come. When the ghetto was liquidated, some Jews were selected for forced labor camps; the rest were killed. Susie would live because of the ingenuity and courage of her mother. It was her mother who disguised Susie as an adult to fool the camp guards; who fed her body and soul through gruesome conditions in three concentration camps; who showed her the power of the human spirit to survive. This harrowing memoir portrays the best and worst of humanity in heartbreaking and compelling scenes that you will never forget.
