Publisher's Summary

A powerful look at an unforgettable era in history

"If we take these children, we can never betray them, no matter what the Nazis do."

During the German occupation of France, 20 French children were brought to a refuge in the mountains. One day a young man came to their school with a request: Could they take in, and hide, 10 Jewish refugee children?

Sister Gabriel spoke up. "The Nazis are looking for those children. If we take them we must never let on they are here. Do you understand?"

Of course the children understood - but how would they hide them if the Nazis came?

Critic Reviews

"Originally published in 1952, this story is set in German-occupied France during World War II. Twenty French schoolchildren and a Catholic nun put their own lives at risk by hiding 10 Jewish children from the Nazis. It is a never-to-be-forgotten saga with an ending that leaves readers cheering." (Mailbox Magazine

Historical at its best.

We listened as a whole family. I was surprised that even my younger children enjoyed it. Everyone came away with new compassion and determination to be courageous and good.

Review by almost 7-year-old who loves audiobooks

It is kind of like a Jesus book. It is really fun, it has lots of tricks (edit by mom: the kids in the story use tricks to hide the Jewish kids). I read the book and I liked it, and I liked the audiobook too. I think you will like it too.
