Karkow, Poland 1939 He is 10 years old living in Poland. His name his Yanek. During this time the Germans are starting to take over. One day the Nazis made to Karkow making all the Jews move to one spot eventually called the ghetto. There was thousands of Jews in apartments.
1940-1942 The Nazis are snatching people up off the streets and from their houses. They have come to Yaneks apartment and took all their money. Eventually his family is taken and so is he. Doing anything to survive now!
1942-1945 Yanek is on his way to his first contraception camp. There he will find his uncle and also find out his parents have died. Though while this is devastating, he now has to come up with a plan to survive. But that's the problem "surviving".
1945 This is a great year. The Americans have started to fight back. Bombing Nazi quarters and taking away ground. Hopefully, the Nazis will retreat and give up, but these are wishes. They just might be true though.
1945 THE NAZIS HAVE RETREATED! This is great. Our camp got bombed and they left. That morning Yanek along with the other Jews where scared. Until, help came. So what will Yanek do since he is alone?
