Storyline

Marek and Celia Dawidowicz are Jewish Poles, who live with their son, Kuba, and nine-year-old daughter, Janian, in Kalisch. As war approaches, the family moves to Warsaw, and Marek and Kuba go off to fight. Marek tries to get his wife to flee to the Russian zone, but she refuses, so Marek returns, and the family members, including her grandparents, are eventually packed off to the Ghetto. Just before the Ghetto uprising in 1943, Marek has Janian smuggled out. First, she lives with Frau Grabowska and her husband. (Frau Grabowska, though an Aryan, had once been Marek's girlfriend.) Next, using false papers, Janian is boarded in a monastery school. And when the Gestapo start sniffing around, she is transferred to another one. Having made it to the end of the war, however, bad news awaits her. Only one other family member has survived.

riveting holocaust miniseries
9 November 2000 | by michael.e.barrettSee all my reviews

In the 80s, there was an all-night syndicated package of foreign TV shows on some cable channel, and they showed this eight-part German miniseries about a little girl whose world slowly tailspins during the Nazi era as she flees from stranger to stranger after her family disappears. On screen, the title was given the translated subtitle "A Square of Sky" although "A Piece of Heaven" or "A Piece of Sky" makes more sense, the point being that at one point she could only see the sky thru an attic window. Anyway, it was spellbinding, told entirely from her point of view. I missed the first and last episodes!
