by Estelle Nadel
A child at the mercy of her neighbors during a terrifying time in history, Estelle would weather loss, betrayal, near-execution, and spend two years away from the warmth of the sun--all before the age of eleven. And once the war was over, she would walk barefoot across European borders and find remnants of home in an Austrian displaced persons camp before finally crossing the Atlantic to arrive in New York City--a young woman carrying the unseen scars of war.
Ages 10 to 14
