Silver Sword, The. Silver Sword by Ian Serraillier (2003) Paperback. Silver Sword by Ian Serraillier (2003-08-01). Escape from Warsaw (Original title: The Silver Sword).

Most of the story is told from the sisters' perspective, as they are left in the rubble of the Warsaw ghetto to scratch out their existence. The book is moving and powerful in its beautiful depiction of the human relationships formed during this difficult time in history.

Ian Serraillier, C. Walter Hodges (Illustrator). I first read Ian Serraillier’s novel The Silver Sword when I was 12. All these years later I had vague memories of what the story was about, but very vivid memories of having loved it. We read it in school and so it wasn’t a book that I’d actually come across elsewhere.

The dramatic story of three Polish children during and just after World War II, whose parents are taken away by the Nazis and their house blown up. The children manage to escape over the rooftops and join the gangs of orphans living in the ruins of the bombed city, existing as best they can. The "silver sword" is only a paper knife, but it is the talisman that, after the Germans have been driven out of Warsaw, gives Ruth, Edek and Bronia the hope and courage to make an astonishing journey across Europe with their friend Jan until they reach a refugee camp where they are reunited with their parents.
Reviews about The Silver Sword (New Windmills) (7):
TheMoonix
The Silver Sword (also known as Escape From Warsaw) takes place in Warsaw during World War II. It is a very moving account of a family separated by war and how they find inner strength to survive their wartime lot, always holding on to the hope that someday they may find all or some of their family. Most of the story is told from the sisters' perspective, as they are left in the rubble of the Warsaw ghetto to scratch out their existence. The book is moving and powerful in its beautiful depiction of the human relationships formed during this difficult time in history. Although it is fiction, it teaches about the sorrows, starvation, hardships and also joys that occur amongst the 'families' of children left to their own instincts and survival skills in their war-torn reality. Over-coming and endurance are lauded. It is an unforgettable, yet triumphant, book that should make you cry, but will leave a compassionate impression for life on the reader. I highly recommend it.

I read this book when I was in 3rd grade. I now have a 3rd grader and decided to buy this book so we can read it together. It is a heart warming story and one of sadness too.

This one takes me WAY back. I first read this when in sixth grade. I was pleased I was able to track down a copy to re-read at age 68. I was not disappointed. I think elementary and junior high school boys and girls would enjoy reading this as well, especially since it's not focused on boys, with a leading role given to a teenage girl.

Beautifu story about how strong will to survive and to be reconnected will love ones during II WW.
This story is close to my heart because I was born in Poland and my parents went trough this horrible time.
Great read *****

As a young student my teacher read this book aloud to my class. It stayed with me for 45 years. I am now reading it aloud to my grandson, we are enjoying it immensely.

I read this when I was 9, and so I bought it for my 8 year old daughter too.

This is a great book for children. It is a very easy book to read, though I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who's looking for a very raw depiction of the holocaust. The book follows a family struggling to survive in a war-torn country. Their only goal is to reunite with some if not all of their missing relatives.
When I think of what kids expect today from the world, this story makes me feel sad for them. The determination and devotion of the kids to their dream of being reunited with their parents was awe inspiring. I hope I have just a smidigen of the tenacity they exhibit. Beautiful story for all ages.
