In 1941, 12-year-old Rivka Rosenfeld lived in a synagogue in the Warsaw ghetto with her grandfather and two sisters because housing was scarce. When German soldiers slashed her grandfather's beard, Rivka was compelled to write in between the pages of a library book by Hans Christian Andersen. Dr. Emanuel Ringelblum, founder of the Underground Archive—a compilation of Warsaw ghetto experiences—asked her to contribute her stories to the archives, and Rivka agreed, imagining her words rising up from the ground on wings of their own.
