In 1942 German Nazis and Polish collaborators drove nine-year-old Naomi Rosenberg and her family from the town of Goray, Poland, and into hiding. For nearly two years they were forced to take refuge in a crawl space beneath a barn. In this tense and moving memoir, the author tells of her terror and confusion as a child literally buried alive. Her family owed their survival to the reluctant and constantly wavering support of the barn owners, gentiles torn between compassion for Naomi’s family and fear of a Nazi death sentence if the family was discovered.
Naomi Samson lives in Baltimore. Kenneth Jacobson is the assistant director of the Anti-Defamation League. Joseph Samson, a practicing attorney, is Naomi Samson’s son.

Editorial Reviews

"The voice of each child survivor is precious and unique. For the most part during the past fifty years the experiences of children have been ignored. It is as if children did not see, hear, feel, touch, or smell. Naomi Samson is adding an important document to the history of the persecution of children during the Holocaust. . . . [The book] is very readable, emotionally moving, and engaging. The reader feels she is right there with a child trying to survive against all odds."—Eva Fogelman, author of Conscience and Courage: Rescuers of Jews during the Holocaust - Eva Fogelman
