Hannah est une petite fille qui ressemble à beaucoup d'autres... elle aime sa poupée, elle aime lire, faire du vélo... Elle rêve comme toutes les petites filles. Mais Hannah, sous le ciel bleu de Paris vit dans un monde où les nazis font la loi ; Hannah est une petite fille juive et les nazis qui occupent la France souhaitent que tous les juifs du monde disparaissent de la terre. Alors que le printemps fait le beau, ils arrêtent Hannah et ses parents et les gardent au camp de Drancy avant de les mener avec d'autres, un matin, à la gare de Bobigny pour un triste voyage en wagon plombé. Pour Hannah, c'est une occasion de rêver, d'autant que le livre qu'elle préfère est une invitation au voyage... Une histoire grave. Une histoire pour mémoire. Une histoire à lire pour que les temps à venir ne soient jamais assez fous pour programmer la mise à mort d'un enfant, d'un père, d'une mère.
