The realities of World War II catapult the Krakowiak family out of their charmed life and into an exodus across half the world.  Joan Arnay Halperin’s book My Sister’s Eyes tells the dramatic true story of her family’s rescue by Aristides de Sousa Mendes and subsequent semi-internment in a British evacuee camp on the island of Jamaica, amounting to a Holocaust tale quite unlike any other.
