Set in Poland between 1951 and 1995, this is the story of how Alex and Mela Roslan saved Jacob and his brother during the holocaust. Despite fears of the Nazi's and the consequences of being caught hiding Jews, Alex and Mela show remarkable courage as they fight to protect Jacob and his brother.

Often gritty and emotional, this book is quick to catch your attention. It is a wonderful introduction to the issues faced during World War II.
