"In 1941 the brutal forces of Nazi Germany invaded Greece, leaving the country stunned and its people in a panic.
Upon the invasion of Athens, the capital of Greece, the peaceful life of a four-year-old changed forever.
Her vivid memories take you to a city under enemy siege ravaged by famine, disease, and death. She describes the terror of the air raids, the sirens, the bombs and the paralyzing hours she spent with her family underground in a bomb shelter.
Her clear memories also guide you to a beautiful mountain village that she and her family took refuge to survive, far away from the city and the war. It was the enchanting beauty of the village and the embracing love of the villagers that chased away the frightening memories of the city.
But as the war spreads to the whole country she and her family find themselves trapped in the village where they once found shelter.
Leading you through a roller coaster of emotions and experiences a child should never go through, this is a true, exhilarating and rare eyewitness testimony of the horrors of war as seen through the eyes of a young child in its rawest and most honest form."
