Roman Halter is an optimistic and boisterous schoolboy in 1939 when he and his family gather behind net curtains to watch the Volksdeutsch neighbours of their small town in western Poland greeting the arrival of Hitler's armies with kisses and swastika flags. Within days, the family home has been seized, and twelve-year-old Roman becomes a slave of the local SS chief and, returning from an errand, silently witnesses his Jewish classmates being bayoneted to death by soldiers at the edge of town. And then there begins the remarkable six-year journey through some of the darkest caverns of Nazi Europe, and the loss of every other member of his family and the 800-strong community of his boyhood. Roman tells his story with a simplicity and grace that allow his suffering and survival to speak for themselves. This unforgettable memoir will strike a chord with readers of Anne Frank's diary, Primo Levi's The Truce, Paul Steinberg's Speak You Also, Daniel Snowman's The Hitler Emigres and other Holocaust literature; for viewers of films like Europa, Europa (Agnieszka Holland) and Schindler's List; and readers of Frank McCourt-like survival stories.
