Summary
Poland, 1939. Two-year-old Renata is woken by her Mamusia in the middle of the night and bundled into the basement. She drifts back to sleep as the sound of thunder rages around them. No one has explained to Renata what war is. And she doesn't understand why their frequent visitors have stopped coming and why they have to wear little six-pointed stars. Renata thinks that they will keep them safe. June 1942. The family are taken to a Ghetto and crammed into a small room with other families. Renata's mother and grandmother are forced to work long hours in a factory until, one day, they don't come back. Five years old, Renata is left utterly alone. Her unlikely blonde hair and blue eyes, and other twists of fate, save her life. A remarkable account of the horrors of war, 'Let Me Tell You a Story' is a powerful memoir of growing up in traumatic times, and of the magical discovery of books
