This was very interesting to read. Written for teen reading. Found the book for 99 cents at my local Goodwill. Of great interest to me since my family is Dutch heritage, with my paternal grandfather from Gronigen. This is a good read for those of us who didn't understand much of the German Nazi occupation in the Netherlands.

It is very simply written, and very matter of fact. As simple and straightforward as it is, the writing is still a work of art as the author recalls some very intense memories. I appreciate the different perspective on WWII - a resistance worker in Holland. It was very insightful.

I picked up this book by accident, but it's such a quick read I decided to finish it. It could be read in a few hours.

It's the memories of one women who was a teenager and resistance worker in Holland during WWII.

TThis was actually a diary of what happened to a Dutch girl during WWII. It was her own story in her own words many years later. Very interesting and everyone who lived through that horror should put pen to paper. The stories need to be told!

So far it has been a page per chapter. Chapter 1 was 11 lines. Plus the words aren't even small. It's crazy!!!
