"A Pole, 14-year-old Marek helps his stepfather smuggle goods into the Jewish ghetto, enduring trips through the foul sewers not from altruism but in order to reap lucrative profits . . . When Marek decides to help another Jew, his actions lead him into the ghetto during the peak of the uprising. The author(s) refusal to exaggerate gives the story unimpeachable impact".--Publishers Weekly.
