Product description

Abandoned in war-torn Poland, Jan clings to a silver sword trinket given to him by an escaped prisoner of war. As he struggles to survive, braving hardship and danger, he thinks of the sword as a lucky charm that keeps his hope alive. But then he meets three other children – Ruth, Edek and Bronia – hiding from the Nazis in the ruins of their city. They have seen the silver sword before. It belonged to their long-lost father. Will any of the children ever see their parents again?

  • A classic story of survival during World War Two
  • Follows four refugees on an epic journey across Europe
  • A tale of hope, courage and families torn apart by war
  • Vividly brings alive the horrors of the Nazi regime
