When the roundups start, Malka's mother knows she must get her daughters seven-year-old Malka and sixteen-year-old Minna across the Hungarian border to safety, a place they hope Jews can live in peace. But escape proves harder than they could have ever imagined. Raw and bleeding feet, bad weather, fear and homesickness fill their nights, until little Malka falls very ill, and must be left behind to be brought across when the threat has passed.

But the threat doesn't pass. Separated from her family, Malka finds herself in a terrifying world of strangers, starvation, and constant fear of Nazi roundups. Completely alone, she struggles to stay hidden in alleyways and old cellars, unaware that miles away, a brokenhearted mother is searching frantically for her lost little girl.

This poignant and unforgettable story is based on a real account of a child's heroic fight to stay alive during one of the darkest moments in human history.
