My name is Hanna. I am 15. I am Latvian. I live with my mother and grandmother. My father is missing, taken by the Russians. I have a boyfriend and I’m training to be a dancer. But none of that is important any more. Because the Nazis have arrived, and I am a Jew. And as far as they are concerned, that is all that matters. This is my story.
Closely based on the true story of the Jews of Riga, The Earth is Singing is a tale of love and loss, betrayal and survival.
Recommended for readers aged 14+
