“In this evocative graphic novel, a grandmother recounts her childhood experiences hiding from the Nazis in World War II France.  Surrounded by cruelty, Dounia also benefited from the exceptional kindness and courage of her protectors.  The telling of her story to her grandchild brings healing and hope.”
