Summary

Based on fact this is the story of children surviving and overcoming the dangers of World War II and the Nazi occupation of Poland, and the subsequent search for their parents.

The night the Nazis come to take their mother away, three children escape in a terrifying scramble across the rooftops. Alone in the chaos of Warsaw, they have to learn to survive on their own.

Then they meet Jan, a ragged boy with a paperknife - the silver sword - that they recognize as belonging to their long-lost father. The sword becomes their symbol of hope as, with Jan, they begin the hazardous journey across war-torn Europe to find their parents.

NOTE : Book banded by Peters.
