The Earth Is Singing

Author: Vanessa Curtis

My name is Hanna. I am 15. I am Latvian.

I live with my mother and grandmother. My father is missing, taken by the Russians.

I have a boyfriend and I’m training to be a dancer. But none of that is important any more. Because the Nazis have arrived, and I am a Jew. And as far as they are concerned, that is all that matters.

This is my story.
