From the Back Cover:

HER MOTHER'S COURAGE KEPT HER ALIVE.

Susie Weksler was only eight in 1941 when Hitler's forces invaded her Lithuanian city of Vilnius. Soon her family would face hunger and fear in the Jewish ghetto -- but worse was to come. Through three concentration camps and a winter "death march", Susie survived forced labor, starvation, brutality, and the terrifying "selections". With courage and ingenuity, Susie's mother helped her to survive the Holocaust -- by hiding her, disguising her as an adult to fool the camp guards, finding food to add to their scarce rations, and giving Susie the will to endure. Susie's harrowing story portrays the best and worst of humanity in heartbreaking scenes that you will never forget.
