Politics doesn't matter to 5-year-old Anita Dittman---she only knows her Aryan father is abandoning her, her Jewish mother, and her sister, Hella. Amid Hitler's persecution, they're forced to leave everything they cherish---including each other. Based on a true story of shattered dreams, the nightmare of Nazi Germany, and God's faithfulness. Ages 8 to 12. 150 pages, softcover from Moody.
Young Anita Dittman's world crumbles as Hitler begins his rise to power in Germany, but because she's a Christian and only half-Jewish, Anita feels sure she and her family are safe from "the Final Solution". She couldn't have been more wrong. Shadow of His Hand is an inspirational young adult historical fiction book based on the real-life story of Anita Dittman, a Holocaust survivor. It follows her struggle against Nazi persecution and her growth in her relationship with God through the worst of times.
