(From the publisher):
Half-Jewish Ellen tries to make sense of the nightmarish world of Vienna during the Second World War. As the adults around her disappear or abandon her, she seeks companionship among a group of other Jewish children, who cope with the strange and terrifying events around them by creating a world of their own, in which the golden star shines before them as a sign of hope.
