This memoir by Therese C. Masson is one of the rare, first-hand accounts of a child’s life in the Warsaw Ghetto and in hiding on the Aryan side. In this short, beautifully written account, the author weaves together memories from her wartime childhood, reflections on the psychological burdens and damages she carried into her adult life, and accounts of her travels in the last decade of her life to contemporary Warsaw seeking to find traces of the past.

In these pages, the reader will encounter events as they were experienced by a child as well as insights and confessions of an adult—written vividly, honestly and with striking psychological insight. This unique tapestry of time and perspective makes this book stand out in the vast and growing literature about the Holocaust.
