Summary, etc.: An amazing WW2 survival story of a time and place largely unfamiliar to today's teen reader: of an unlikely hero squeezed between the German invader and the Soviet government itself. Impeccably researched: eye-witness accounts provide anecdotal detail to a chilling story of the triumph of bravery and defiance in the face of terrifying odds.
An account of the Siege of Leningrad reveals the role played by Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich and his Leningrad Symphony in rallying and commemorating their fellow citizens.
