Trapped in Poland at the outbreak of the war, Erna Blitzer Gorman and her family were moved from one ghetto to another. When a Ukrainian farmer agreed to hide the small family in his hayloft, no one dreamed that they would be there for almost two years. When the Russians liberated the area, the family was forced to leave their hiding place and join the advancing army. After the tragic death of Erna's mother, the girls and their father struggled for survival and to get home to France. Erna never spoke of her experiences to anyone for almost forty years until she heard a stranger's words of hate on the television. Faced with long-repressed memories, Erna had to learn how to cope with her past.
