This story reveals the fate of two Jewish families during the German invasion and subsequent Holocaust in Norway in 1940. Inspired by the author's own experience growing up Jewish in 1940s Norway, it brings readers both young and old into the touching struggles of one incredible family.
Irene Levin Berman was born, raised, and educated in Norway. Her first conscious recollection of life goes back to 1942, when as a young child she escaped to Sweden, a neutral country during World War II, to avoid annihilation. Germany had invaded Norway and the persecution of two thousand Norwegian Jews had begun. Seven members of her father's family were among the seven hundred and seventy-one unfortunate persons who were deported and sent to Auschwitz.
