    Edition: Advance Reading Copy (trade paperback format) for the 2nd edition (originally published in 2002.)

Twenty-thousand Jews found refuge in this city already teeming with people; this is an account of the hardships they encountered, but also the friendships and the helpfulness, and also an account of coming to age in a world torn by war. A fascinating account. Photographs. 267 pp.
