‘We must get away from here . . . ‘ The night the Nazis take their mother away, three children escape in a dangerous scramble across the rooftops of Warsaw, where they have to learn to survive on their own. Then they meet Jan, a boy with a paperknife – the silver sword – that they recognize as belonging to their long-lost father. The sword becomes their symbol of hope as they begin the hazardous journey across war-torn Europe to find their parents.
