Rica Levi, 15, and her brother Lelio, 8, are instructed by their widowed father to flee their home in the Rome ghetto in 1943. In the ensuing months and years, they don’t know what has happened to him and fear the worst. In four sections, the book describes the children’s hiding by Catholics in Narola, Italy; the liberation of Rome by the Allies and their return to find their ransacked and defaced apartment; the search for family after the war; and, finally, their reunion with their father. Many good people help the children, most modestly saying that they were just doing the decent thing. An engaging, if overly wordy, story about the experiences of Jews in Hungary and Italy during the Holocaust.
