Publisher Summary
Offers the true story of a Dutch couple who risked their own lives to help Jews, resistance fighters, and others in need of help trying to escape the ruthless Nazis during World War II, as told through the eyes of a child.

When Holland was under Nazi rule, the Dutch lived extremely harsh lives. Thousands were in hiding, especially Jews who had managed to escape transport to the death camps. Frans Braal and his wife Mies took in anyone in need of help ? Jews, children whose parents could no longer look after them, resistance fighters, and people who were starving ? providing them with a temporary home. Twice their place was searched by the Nazis, and on both occasions they managed to hide everyone in time. Told through the eyes of a child, this is the story of the Braals, two people who willingly put themselves in great danger in order to save the lives of those less fortunate. Throughout, sidebars provide further information about Dutch resistance workers and traitors, Dutch Jews, bombing missions, false identity cards, the war, and more. The book also gives a flavor of wartime Dutch culture ? treats, children's games, favorite books, and a visit from Sinterklaas are all relished by the young protagonist. A glossary is also included.
