Description


Marek has never thought about the Jewish people who live in the Warsaw Ghetto near his home—until he helps his stepfather smuggle food and guns through the sewer to sell there. Even then, he does not truly understand what it means to be isolated, persecuted, and faced with almost certain death at the hands of the Nazis. Then Marek meets a Jewish man on the run—and, in helping him, is thrust into the middle of an uprising.
