The story of a boy's happy childhood in The City Of Light, where all was well and life was full of warmth and promise. But, beneath the surface, hatred and bigotry, called antisemitism, led to terrible events and the boy was forced to flee, and become a refugee. The book includes a Yiddish glossary for children, a recipe for honey cake, and an old-new Chanukka song. We learn to see that the light can never go out: if we look to the goodness and kindness, and the commitment to love and justice, inside our own hearts. Based on the real-life story of the famous actor, singer and movie star Theodore Bikel. For readers aged 10-120.
