With the closing of the ghetto gate, the Commandant decreed that any Jew found outside the ghetto without permission would be shot on sight. Slavs who gave Jews food would be shot. And as if that wsn't enough of a deterrent, the Nazis posted signs all over town claiming that contact with Jews could spread disease.
War is raging around Krystia’s town. Her uncle and cousin have already died at the hands of the Soviet and Nazi invaders. Now her Jewish friends face starvation in the ghetto, or death in the camps... unless she can find a way to help them.
