The grayling fish was an immediate source of food for Martin’s family who were hiding from the Nazis
The novel The Grayling Hidden Truth Poems is about a family in Nazi Slovakia who escaped to the woods. The significance of the grayling fish is that the fish spawned in the waters in the lakes in Slovakia and was plentiful. The grayling fish, however, fights fiercely to survive after it has been taken from the water. The grayling fish became the Freier family’s symbol of survival. They survived the war.
