Summary :

Sixteen-year-old Hilary Burke hates Jews. As part of a neo-nazi gang in her town, she's finally found a sense of belonging. But then she is critically injured during a motorcycle accident with her boyfriend, Brad, and nothing will ever be the same.

Lying near death in a Jewish hospital, Hilary finds herself bombarded by memories of a life in Poland -- she becomes Chana, a girl whose family is forced from their home by the nazis and marched to the Lodz ghetto, where starvation drives people to desperate acts and the streets are smeared with filth. Those who are strong enough to survive are shipped to the mass slaughterhouse at Auschwitz.

How can Chana endure such a life? And how can Hilary?
