Brief Summary: This book tells the inspirational tale of a Polish, Jewish woman imprisoned at Bergen-Belsen. After discovering 54 Dutch orphans left in the woods, Luba brings them into the camp and cares for them with the help of other women prisoners.
The pictures are very cool. They're a bit darker, which reflects the mood of the camp, yet there are splashes of color that seem to represent their happiness. Many of the pictures are created with a patchwork feel to them.
