Read full description of the books:
This book follows the lives of three of the hidden children during the holocaust, one hidden with her mother using forged papers and passing as Catholic. The other two in different and sometimes worse situations.
Some would not learn they were Jewish until they were grown and had trouble accepting the truth.
Although I have read many books fiction and non about the holocaust I never really thought about those that had survived because they were hidden, raised by other families or just sheltered by those who did not agree with the Nazi solution. The author does a good job presenting these cases and goes on to examine the guilt many of them have for surviving when so many of their family members did not.
I also learned a few things I had never known: Belgium sheltered over 4000 Jewish people and the Dutch had the greatest percentage of Jews lost. The bravery of all involved is considerable and I am in awe of their courage and sacrifice. If only more had felt this way.
