Translated from the Yiddish by the author, The Cage is a compelling memoir of the author's life from 1939, when the Germans invaded her native Poland, to the 1945 liberation of the concentration camp in which she was held prisoner. After her mother's arrest in 1942, Riva struggles to provide for her younger brothers in the Lodz ghetto. The siblings are first transported to Auschwitz, and eventually end up at the Mitelsteine labor camp, where Riva and her brothers are separated forever and she survives through her own courage and the support of other inmates, as well as surprising small sparks of humanity from some officials.
