In June 1939, shortly before her 11th birthday, Vera Gissing escaped from occupied Czechoslovakia, leaving behind her parents, family, and friends, to spend six years in Britain. Throughout the war years, Vera kept a diary, recording her day-to-day experiences, her longing for her parents, her hopes, and herВ prayers for the freedom of her country. By the time she returned to Prague to set up home with her aunt in 1945, she knew that both her parents had diedвЂ”her mother in Belsen, her father on a death march. She came back to England in 1949 and has lived there ever since. The memories and emotions rekindled by a reunion of the Czech school in Wales where she was educated encouraged Vera to go back to her diaries and theВ letters from her parents that she had not touched for 40 years,В resulting in thisВ powerful and moving account of the life of one child growing up in extraordinary circumstances.
