We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock.
Holocaust survivor, Roman Kent, tells the touching story of the loving relationship he had with his dog during the years of the Holocaust. After young Roman is forced to leave his dog behind in the country as the Nazis approach, he is stunned to find that Lala has located him on a train bound for Lodz. Later, when the family is forced into the Lodz ghetto, Lala again miraculously finds the family. From then, Lala spends her days in a factory caring for her puppies and her nights in the ghetto with the Kent family, until the sad day when the Nazis force all ghetto residents to hand over their pets. Lala teaches Kent that “love is stronger than hate, and no guns, barbed wire and no German guards could stop her from proving it.” The book features illustrations and photographs.
