A true tale of courage and companionship
Growing up in the Polish village of Tarnogrod, Mala Szorer had the happiest childhood she could have hoped for. But at the age of twelve, as the German invasion begins, her village becomes a ghetto and she sees her loved ones rounded up for deportation.
In order to survive, she walks away from everything she holds dear to live by herself in the forest, hiding from Nazis and hostile villagers. She is followed by a stray cat who stays with her—and seems to come to her rescue time and time again. The cat becomes her family, a guide, and a reminder to stay hopeful even when faced with unfathomable darkness.
Filled with remarkable spiritual strength, this incredible true story is a powerful addition to the Holocaust canon.
“In this gorgeous debut, Kacenberg shares her harrowing and courageous story of surviving the Holocaust."—Publishers Weekly
