A Square of Sky: A Wartime Childhood from Ghetto to Convent

by Janina David - £13.99  Eland (2004)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780907871736 | ISBN 10: 0907871739

At the age of nine, Janina David led a sheltered life with her prosperous Jewish family in Poland. A year later they were all on the verge of starvation, sharing a small room in the Warsaw ghetto. When it became clear that none of them was likely to survive, the thirteen-year-old girl was smuggled out to live with family friends. When their home became too dangerous, she was sent with false identity papers to a Catholic convent, where she lived in constant fear of being discovered. In this memoir, David records the events around her through the eyes of a child, lonely and terrified, yet her determination to survive reads like a testament to the resilience of the human spirit.
