During World War II, many Jewish children were hidden to save them from the Nazis.  Esther was one of those children.  Now, as an adult, she is journeying back to the farm where she was hidden. Along the way, she shares her story with her grandson.  This graphic novel does not gloss the horrors of the war.  It is powerful and tells the story of an atrocious time in world history.
