Summary
Aron, one of the children of the Warsaw Ghetto who smuggle and trade things through the "quarantine walls" to keep their people alive, is rescued by a Jewish-Polish doctor who instills within him the importance of revealing to the world the atrocities they have all suffered. is a breathtaking novel of extraordinary craft, humanity, and masterful storytelling. Fearless, and devoid of sentimentality, it looks squarely into the face of unspeakable suffering, evil and lawlessness, revealing the persistence and strength of the human spirit despite all odds and the redemptive power of love
Summary
Aron, the narrator, an unhappy young boy and his family are driven by the German onslaught from the Polish countryside into an area in Warsaw that is battered by deprivation, disease, and persecution. He and a handful of boys and girls risk their lives by smuggling and trading things through the quarantine walls in hopes of keeping their families alive. When his family is stripped away from him, Aron is rescued by Janusz Korczak, a doctor renowned throughout Europe as an advocate of childrens rights who, once the Nazis swept in, was put in charge of the Warsaw orphanage. But Treblinka awaits them all. Does Aron manage to escape, as Korczak suspects he could, to spread the word about the atrocities?
