Overview

Not just another Holocaust story, Storming the Tulips is an intimate encounter with history, as told by twenty former students of the 1st Montessori School in Amsterdam. They were children-contemporaries of Anne Frank-and this book is a companion to The Diary of Anne Frank. While Anne's story describes her sequestered life in the Annex, Storming the Tulips reveals what children on the outside endured-in the streets, in hiding, and in the concentration camps.
Their friends disappeared. Their parents sent them away. They were herded on trains and sent to death camps. They joined the Nazi youth. They hid Jews. They lost their families. They picked the pockets of the dead. They escaped. They dodged bullets. They lived in terror. They starved. They froze. They ate tulip bulbs. They witnessed a massacre. They collected shrapnel. And finally, they welcomed the Liberation.
Some lost their families, most lost their homes, but they all lost their innocence as they fought to survive in a world gone mad-the only world that they knew.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up—The tragic story of the Netherlands under Nazi occupation resounds dramatically through the words of 20 survivors from the first Montessori school in Amsterdam. Contemporaries of Anne Frank, they were interviewed by Ronald Sanders, now a teacher at the school. Though the book focuses on this small group, it presents a well-documented history of the country during World War II. In addition to the essays, descriptions of unusual heroes from the Resistance help to round out the picture. The bravery of those people and others who risked their lives to hide Jews and to oppose the Germans is honored. Different experiences come to life in each vignette, from those of Jewish children to the child of a member of the Nazi party. The desperation and resilience of ordinary people and the courage shown by the school's principal and some of the teachers are highlighted. This is a chronicle of "life on the streets" during the atrocious conditions created by the occupation. The book concludes with a chilling list of the 170 youngsters from the school who died in various concentration camps. This title would be an excellent choice to read with The Diary of Anne Frank and with fiction such as Jan Terlouw's Winter in Wartime (McGraw Hill, 1976) and Mal Peet's Tamar (Candlewick, 2007). It's is an absorbing book on its own as well as a fine choice to include in an interdisciplinary study.—Renee Steinberg, formerly at Fieldstone Middle School, Montvale, NJ
