Description

Anna was 13 when the war started. Her sister Kati was 8 and her brother Nikki was 6. They lived in a small village in Germany and because they had black hair and dark eyes, the other children called them gypsies or Jews and threw stones at them. This is the story of how three German children went through the Second World War -- the trains, the air-raids, the fires, the Gestapo, the journeys -- and of how they matured and grew up on the edge of war.show more
