Little Girl Lost
The more we felt the Germans’ heavy boots in our lives, the more I knew that I had to leave…but I was scared. Where was I going to go? What would I live on?
Sixteen-year-old Basia Kohn escapes the invasion of her small hometown and, crossing the border into Soviet-occupied Poland, she begins a journey that takes her thousands of kilometres from a forced labour camp in subarctic Russia to subtropical Soviet Georgia. Always optimistic and ready to take on new adventures as she struggles to survive in exile without family, Betty Rich’s memoir, Little Girl Lost, is a “montage of graphic snapshots and moments in motion….” Wherever she finds herself, whatever she has lost, Betty is determined to survive on her own terms.
