Overview

This is the touching and inspirational story of Sala Lewis, who at age ten was left alone to wander the streets of Poland after her family was taken away by the Nazis.

Sala had been out with her friends and came home to find her family gone and the apartment where she lived sealed off. Everything she possessed was no longer hers. She had no family, no clothes, no food, and at that moment in time, no future.

Sala was strong willed. It was easy to see that, even though she was young, Sala would not get lost in the world. She wouldn't give up and she wouldn't allow herself to be afraid. Her uncompromising determination led her to find the camp where her sister, Dora, was being kept. Once the sisters were together, nothing could stop them.

Their love and commitment to each other continued to be beyond reproach throughout their time together. They believed in the American dream and the land of opportunity. The proudest day of their lives was when they became United States citizens. They were more than survivors now, they were Americans!

A portion of the proceeds from this book will be donated to the Holocaust Museums in Washington, DC and Skokie, Illinois.
