    These personal narratives of Dutch Jewish children who survived in hiding during World War II is a powerful, sobering read At the conclusion of the book, there s an array of photographs of the children, now elderly their faces are so beautiful, and after reading their stories, all I can think is that growing old is such a privilege one that many of their friends and family members never attained This book will stay with me.

    It s hard not to be affected by an incredible collection like this Hidden Like Anne Frank contains 14 stories from survivors of WWII, along with amazing historical photographs that give the reader a better glimpse into each personal story Some of these individuals were separated from parents and other family members for years, moved from home to home dozens of times, hidden in orphanages, attics, lofts, closets, stairwells, occasionally even trash cans , and every other place imaginable Man It s hard not to be affected by an incredible collection like this Hidden Like Anne Frank contains 14 stories from survivors of WWII, along with amazing historical photographs that give the reader a better glimpse into each personal story Some of these individuals were separated from parents and other family members for years, moved from home to home dozens of times, hidden in orphanages, attics, lofts, closets, stairwells, occasionally even trash cans , and every other place imaginable Many of those hiding were very young children who had to be incredibly brave and quiet in their hiding places while German soldiers searched the entire home Although many families that housed those in hiding were wonderful and kind, children were sometimes moved to homes of very cruel or strict families and were abused The most difficult stories are those in which children were not ever really able to reconcile with their parents after being reunited, because the pain of abandonment could not be fully resolved, even though parents had the best of intentions when they made their decisions Even decades later, older adults who had been in hiding during WWII continue to worry about the need to escape, because the trauma of being hidden for so long is not something that ever really goes away Many other difficulties also came after the war, such as trying to rebuild and start over, and learning of loved ones who had been killed Yet there were also some amazing stories of unexpected reunions Hidden Like Anne Frank is definitely a wonderful addition to a school library, and one that will give students a much better perspective on true stories of suffering and courage during WWII

    There are fourteen true stories of survival from WWII in this novel, some of the stories are from individuals who were only three years old at the time of this horrific event and others were teenagers, nevertheless they are all true accounts of survivors I was amazed at the similarities of the stories it seemed that most of the survivors were passed along to their relatives multiple times and that their names were changed often Some individuals were shuffled around so frequently I almost forg There are fourteen true stories of survival from WWII in this novel, some of the stories are from individuals who were only three years old at the time of this horrific event and others were teenagers, nevertheless they are all true accounts of survivors I was amazed at the similarities of the stories it seemed that most of the survivors were passed along to their relatives multiple times and that their names were changed often Some individuals were shuffled around so frequently I almost forgot what their birth names were and they themselves were reluctant to say it even when liberation was at their front door I was surprised at the tone of this book as there wasn t much emotion, scary or traumatizing details in the stories The narratives gave the facts, remarkable portrayal of facts of what occurred in their lives as the Nazi s invaded their lives Some of the stories that I especially enjoyed was reading about a gentlemen who was bitter towards his parents for abandoning him when he was a child His parents sent him off into hiding at a young age to save him and after reuniting with him after the liberation, he just couldn t see past this resentment I found this amazing Even after all the stories that he has heard about the war, he still harbors these feelings towards his parents when all his parents were trying to do was to provide him a future Then there was the story of Sieny who worked in the kindergarten which cared for newborns through older children This was the holding area for the children who were on the way to the concentration camps while their parents were in a different area, as the children made too much noise for the soldiers Sieny worked to move the children out secretly with the parents as the parents would not register all their children in the kindergarten Sieny secretly talked to the parents about when they would be leaving the holding area and whether they would like to take their children with them Sieny knew ahead of time when this time would come Using baby dolls they could also fool the soldiers Sieny and other individuals working alongside her saved many children The means these individuals used to save these children while putting their own lives on the line was truly spectacular
