Becky's family, her mother father and little brother are Jews, its 1938 and things are beginning to get worrying in their country of birth, Poland. Adolf Hitler had come into power in Germany and wanted what he called living space for the german people, this meant invading the countries close to him, he hated the Jews and blamed them for everything that was bad in Germany.
Becky's family decided they had to leave Poland but could not take her younger brother or Aunt with them, intending to send for them later, eventually reaching France that was considered safe.
Their was no safety in France where with the help of a young girls family that Becky had befriended they managed to just about keep one step ahead of the German's.
One of the better My Story books and an ok read.

Rebecca and her family are Polish Jews who escape Warsaw prior to World War Two. The story is told in simple language through Rebecca's diary entries and observations on life as a refugee. It is an incredibly moving tale of their journey from one place to another during the pre-war and war years, with nowhere to stay that was safe in the long term. A compelling, un-put-downable book. This is real history brought to life, and should be on the school curriculum! A must-read!!! And a sequel, please, Carol.

This book was hard to get into but it does helps you to experience the emotions felt by the Jews.

One of her best books, a different slant on the Jew's plight during the Second World War.

This was a very good book. It was a bit vague in places and some bits didn't grab me but still worth it. There are quite a few 'My Story' books about this time in history so maybe I've just read to many but I don't think this was the best one.
