  • About the Book

    Events in this book are described from the view of a small girl who hid inside a wall with her little brother and parents during World War II. The characters are based on real people.“No one knows what is behind the closet – there is a hole in thewall. We crawled into the wall. Mother and father were with usand it was crowded. We could only lie down next to each other and couldn’t even lift up our heads. We learned to crawl. At first we tired quickly and it was hard to lie all the time but soon we began to make trips inside the wall – in complete silence. We could hear the Germans talking. They were on the other side of the wall – right next to us. We talked with our eyes, smiled withour eyes and asked questions with our eyes.”
