* Description

They hid...and they survived.

This incredible collection of first-person accounts shares what it was really like to go into hiding during World War II. Each story is different: some children were only three years old; some were teenagers. Some hid with neighbours or relatives, while many were with complete strangers. But all know the pain of losing their homes, their families, even their own names. They describe the secret network of brave people who kept them safe, as well as the coincidences and close escapes that made all the difference.

The stories in this book are often heartbreaking, but they remind us of the strength and the kindness of others, and the courage it took to survive.
