Note: 
Despite harassments and random killings, young teen Sarah and her family manage to stay together in their German-occupied Polish town. Their "luck" runs out when the ghetto is liquidated. At the urging of her parents, Sarah evades deportation and makes her way into the forest where she joins a group of Jewish partisans. Based on real life experiences, this book celebrates the exploits of Tuvia Bielski and his brothers, who not only attacked the Nazis, but sheltered numerous Jews in their stronghold. This is a well written account of Jews who fought back.
