When Nazi Germany invaded the Soviet Union in June of 1941, ten-your-old Tatjana Wassiljewa's childhood ended as abruptly as the war between the two countries began. In this remarkable memoir, based on her diary entries, she tells about surviving German bomb attacks and near starvation only to wind up a captive laborer, one of seven million prisoners forced to work in German farms and factories. There, despite constant hunger and backbreaking work, she managed to find friendship and even first love. Readers will be moved by Tatjana's resilience, courage, and persistent faith in humanity during the little-known struggle of Russian civilians during World War II.
