Editorial Reviews


This is an inspiring story that moves back and forth in time, between the author's present-day life in Israel and her childhood experience as an abandoned child during the Holocaust. You are pulled into the story, page by page, feeling the struggle she faced in order put her experiences on paper. You'll feel the loss, the pain and the fear of the unknown. Despite it all, you can sense her optimism and hope for the future... her future. Lauren Joseph --This text refers to the paperback edition.

From the Author

This book describes the life of a child-in-hiding during the Holocaust. It is an exploration of the mind under tremendous psychological anguish; the plight of a child inexplicably abandoned by an otherwise loving father. Both a result of painful experience and written in spite of them - this book is written with generous servings of humor and a rare optimism and desire to deeply drink life in. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Just a child at the outbreak of WWII, Ariella Palacz was born to a Jewish family in France.

In an attempt to save the children, the family was separated. Ariella's mother was hospitalized, as she was unable to care for them. The children were sent off to a remote village, hidden under false identities and raised as Christians.

When the war was over, their father came to take them back. He was alone. Ariella's mother had been killed by the Nazis.

In 1970, Ariella immigrated to Israel together with her husband Eitan and children Yoram and Yael. Her third child – Keren – was born in Israel. She lived in Jerusalem and worked in the Yad VaShem Holocaust museum where she told her story to thousands of visitors from all backgrounds. Ariella was a mother, a grandmother, and a great-grandmother.

Ariella passed away in 2017
