Each shovel of earth muffled the boy's cry from the grave.   As the acid taste of bile burned his throat, Benny shoveled frantically, trying to cover the terrible screams of his friend being buried alive.   If he failed the guards would not hesitate to make his fate that of Moses.

Song of a Sparrow is not just another testimonial against Nazi atrocities.   It's about a boy's six-year fight for freedom.   Seized by fear and starvation, Benny refuses to be sucked into paranoia and defeatism.   The boy sings for food and for his life, courageously and miraculously escaping that which threatens him -- the Warsaw ghetto, labor and concentration camps, the mobile gas unit, hanging, and even the shooting pit.
