Fourteen-year-old Dita is one of the many imprisoned by the Nazis at Auschwitz. Taken, along with her mother and father, from the Terezín ghetto in Prague, Dita is adjusting to the constant terror that is life in the camp. When Jewish leader Freddy Hirsch asks Dita to take charge of the eight precious volumes the prisoners have managed to sneak past the guards, she agrees. And so Dita becomes the librarian of Auschwitz. Based on the experience of real-life Auschwitz prisoner Dita Kraus, out of one of the darkest chapters of human history comes this extraordinary story of courage and hope.

Translated from the Spanish.
