It's World War II, and Misha's family, like the rest of the Jews living in Warsaw, has been moved by the Nazis into a single crowded ghetto. Conditions are appalling: every day more people die from disease, starvation, and deportations. Misha does his best to help his family survive, even crawling through the sewers to smuggle food. When conditions worsen, Misha joins a handful of other Jews who decide to make a final, desperate stand against the Nazis.

Heavily illustrated with sober blue-and-white drawings, this powerful novel dramatically captures the brutal reality of a tragic historical event.

According to the book's historical note, the protagonist Misha is based on the stories of numerous Jews who were persecuted during the Nazi occupation of Warsaw.  So many interesting things about the book:  the size, the sparseness of words on the pages, the contrast of black and white pages, the illustrations conveying the hopelessness of the residents of the city.  Yet amongst the despair is hope.  An excellent fiction source for Holocaust studies.
