This is an amazing picture book based on a true story. Herman is a young Jewish boy living in a concentration camp, struggling to survive. He meets a young girl by the fence one day and she gives him an apple. They arrange to meet everyday by the fence. Herman survives the concentration camp thanks to his "Angel Girl". After his liberation, Herman and his brother's move to the United States. Herman's friends set him up on a blind date. As it just so turns out, Herman's date is "Angel Girl" ...and the rest, as they say, is history. Herman and Angel Girl marry and are still going strong 50 years later.

Strangely similar to "Boy in the Stripped Pajamas" but true and without the jacked up ending. The illustrations are almost as amazing as the story. Definitely check it out.
