The War Within These Walls

By Aline Sax, Laura Watkinson (Translator)

With powerful text and stark illustrations, this novella provides a harrowing account of Jewish suffering in the Warsaw ghetto during World War II.  Misha's poetic first-person account tells of his struggle to survive. Together with a band of revolutionaries, they make a courageous stand to tell the world their story.
