It's about a Jewish family and what they go through between 1933 and 1945. Their journey begins in Frankfurt, Germany and ends in Lodz, Poland in 1945. Daniel, a German Jew, tells the story. He is only 6 when the story begins and 18 when it ends. We are able to experience the terrible events of the Holocaust through Daniel's eyes. He endures anti-semitism that culminates in the death camps and extermination of many Jews and other ethnic groups who didn't fit Hitler's idea of the blond, blue-eyed white race he wanted to create.
