Hidden Like Anne Frank: 14 True Stories of Survival by Marcel Prins, Peter Henk Steenhuis, translated by Laura Watkinson
Now in paperback, fourteen unforgettable true stories of children hidden away during World War II to escape the Holocaust.
We all read the compelling story of Anne Frank and want to know more: How many others were hidden away during World War II? How and where? Were they separated from their families? Did they ever find each other again? And what was it really like to live in hiding, in constant fear of discovery?
Hidden Like Anne Frank tells the stories of fourteen young people who were hidden throughout the Netherlands during the war. Some were only three or four years old when they went into hiding; some were teenagers. But they all have amazing stories to tell, stories of the brave people who kept them safe; of the pain of separation from their families, their homes, even their own names; of the coincidences that made all the difference. These riveting first-person accounts add a new layer to our understanding of the Holocaust. They help create a wider portrait of what it meant to be Jewish in Europe during World War II. And they leave us with an unforgettable sense of what it took to survive.
