While translating the book "Smuggled in potato sacks. 50 stories of the hidden kids from the Kaunas ghetto." from Hebrew into Lithuanian we were planning to donate the books to the schools, but did not dare to dream about gaining such a warm support from the Ministry of culture of Lithuania. Can you imagine a car of the Ministry of culture travelling to the most distant towns and villages bringing the book for their Holocaust education in your country?
Smuggled in Potato Sacks is a collection of stories compiled by Holocaust survivors Ariela Abramovich Sef and Ilana Kamber-Ash, both born in the Kovno Ghetto and hidden during the Holocaust. Inspired to preserve their own stories as well as those of other children who had been rescued, they collected as many testimonies as they could find, and in the end, put together this book with fifty stories of hidden children from the Kovno Ghetto.
