Ruth Vander Zee tells the story of a women Erika, she met on a trip in Europe. Erika was a new born when her and her Jewish parents were being sent to concentration camps. On the trian ride, Erika's mother wraps her tightly and throws her off the train. A woman picked her up and took her home and raised her. Because nothing was known about her, she was given a new name, birth date, etc. She has no clue of who she is and where she is from.

Powerful account of a Holocaust survivor who tells the story of how "on her way to death, my mother threw me to life." Using a limited palette format, Innocenti's superb illustrations are stark and foreboding, using only a splash of pink to symbolize hope and Erika's opportunity for survival. A companion story to Innocenti's "Rose Blanche" which is equally heart wrenching.
