"I remember the simple green sweater my grandmother knitted for me when we still lived in our grand apartment at Kopernika 12...This sweater was my favorite. It had a delicate lace neckline. After she was taken in one of the actions, it was even more precious. I wore it constantly. When I put it on, it felt as if I were wearing one of her warm hugs. That I managed to keep the sweater all during the war was just another of the small miracles that found me and my family." (pg. 4 and 5)
This was Krysha's dollhouse that she had when the Russians were in control. This dollhouse symbolizes hope because Krysha would pretend this was her old house and it was her escape of what was actually happening around her.
"And then she did the strangest thing. She started pinching our cheeks. Over and over, she pinched our cheeks. We complained because the pinching started to hurt, but she still kept pinching. She said, "Cicho, cicho, cicho," to keep us calm, to let us know everything was going to be all right." (pg. 47)
"Very quickly, our group became like a family. Socha was our true leader---a benevolent ruler...it was a wonderful thing, the way our spirits lifted each morning when he arrived with our delivery. (pg. 184)

The sweater symbolizes love because it was made by her grandmother just before the war and it gives her memories from before the war.
