Summary
When bombs began to fall on Warsaw, Julian's world crumbled. His beloved governess Kiki returned to her family in Lodz; Julian's stepfather joined the Polish army and the grief-stricken boy was left with the mother whom he hardly knew. Resourceful and determined, his mother did whatever was necessary to provide for herself and her son: she brazenly cut into food lines and befriended Russian officers to get extra rations of food and fuel. However, brought up by Kiki to distrust all things Jewish, Julian considered his mother's behavior un-Christian
Summary
The author shares the story of his flight from Warsaw after the Nazi invasion, guided by the spoiled, self-centered mother he barely knew
