Behind the Walls is the inspiring story of Chanah Kaufman's wartime experiences and survival. Chanah's comfortable life in Brussels begins to unravel slowly -- at first, the Jewish girls were no longer to sit next to their Christian classmates. Then Chanah could no longer play outside. Next, Jews began to disappear from Brussels. Chanah's parents began to sell their household possessions. And then Chanah is sent to hide in a gentile acquaintance's cellar until the war's end. Join Chanah in her seclusion in the cellar, as she is placed in a convent, and her rescue from behind its walls. Chanah's victory against both the Germans who sought to harm her body, and the Christians who tried to hurt her soul, is a testament to the strength of the Jewish spirit.
