A gripping book about the Holocaust for children and young adults based on authentic documents.

Twelve-year-old Honza’s war story begins in 1940 and ends in the autumn of 1943 and describes a childhood and adolescence cut short by history as well as heroism, friendship and solidarity regardless of age or risk. The story is set in the ghetto of Terezín, where the main character ends up in solidarity with his Jewish schoolmates. The author links fiction with documents: for example, the diary of the prisoner Petr Ginz and the Terezín children’s magazine Vedem. “The only thing which distinguishes us from them is that we were born into happier times,” states the author, who has been studying the lives of children in the Terezín ghetto since 2009.
