Orca Book Publishers
A dresser becomes the perfect hiding place during WWII.
The heroine, Gabi, recounts how as a young Jewish girl she lived on a family farm in Eastern Europe during the Second World War. She describes her community before the Nazi occupation and the events that unfolded afterwards. When the Nazis conducted house searches for Jewish children, Gabi successfully hid in the dining-room dresser. The only thing retrieved from the home after the war was the dresser that saved Gabi's life. It now sits in author Kathy Kacer's home in Toronto. Kacer is Gabi's daughter and has based the story on her mother's experiences.
As conditions for Czechoslovakian Jews gradually get worse, Gabi and her mother learn that the Nazis are taking away young girls and prepare a hiding place for her in a large piece of furniture.
