Publisher's Description

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, twenty 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, ten 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?

Editorial 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 ten Jewish children from the Nazis. It is a never-to-be-forgotten saga with an ending that leaves readers cheering."— Mailbox Magazine
