Note: 
A survival story and a powerful indictment of war, this is propelled by a plot unusual in World War II fiction: the kidnapping of Italian boys by their country's German allies for forced labor. Roberto and his Jewish friend, Samuele, must live by their wits to evade Nazi cruelty. The stoicism with which Samuele confronts his fate is matched by the courage of both boys as they perform small, furtive acts of kindness to alleviate the misery of Jewish prisoners whose treatment by brutal guards is even worse than their own.
