Based on a true story from the author's family, Letters from Rifka presents a real-life heroine with an uncommon courage and unsinkable spirit. Rifka and her family get on a train that they are not allowed on, but since Rifka has blond hair she can distract the guards from checking the box carts until the train starts to leave. Before long, if you keep at it, you get those days again when it is just beautiful and the words just flow.

    She lives with a kind couple, gets treated by a nurse who teaches her Flemish, and makes friends in the park across the street. She gets a cookie for anything — absolutely anything! Do you have any final words for the audience? Saul makes sure they have a place to sleep and stay at, while he also took a job just so they can have food. Rifka Nebrot, aged twelve, is the youngest child in the family and the only girl.
