This book tells one of the great untold stories of the Second World War. When they were not yet twenty years old three young Jews left their families in Western Poland and came to the Lithuanian ghetto of Vilna. Ababa Covina, who had belonged to a Zionist youth brigade, became the leader of the young people in the ghetto; Rushka Marie and Vitka Kempner were his deputies. Together they organised the first underground movement in Europe and used the tunnels beneath the city to smuggle food and weapons into and out of the ghetto. In 1943 they led their band of resistance fighters into the forests of Poland, from where they bombed the occupied city they loved. His father Rushka's cousin, Rich Cohen tells their story brilliantly, with the momentum of a suspense novel and the moral force of a biblical text.
