During the days of Nazi terror in Europe, many Jewish children were taken from their families and hidden. Régine Miller was one such child, who left her mother, father, and brother when she was 10 years old. Utterly alone as she is shunted from place to place, told to tell no one she is Jewish, she hears that her mother and brother have been taken by the SS, the German secret police. Only her desperate hope that her father will return sustains her. At war’s end she must learn to live with the terrible truth of “the final solution,” the Nazi’s extermination camps.
The people who sheltered Régine cover a wide spectrum of human types, ranging from callous to kind, fearful to defiant, exploitive to caring. This is a story of a brave girl and an equally brave woman to tell the story so many years later.

This is a tragic story of a Jewish girl living during WWII. IT makes you realize how fortunate you are and to never give up hope. I am a HUGE WWII book fan and this is one of the best I've read.
Tell No One Who You Are was a sad true story of a young girl living through the Holocaust as a Jew. When her mother and brother were killed right in front of her and her father, she got sent to a house far away to keep her from getting killed by the Germans. This happens after being beaten, used as a slave, and as a families one and only daughter. This book was breath taking and unbeleivably told by a person who lived through the Holocaust. I did not dislike verry much of this book. The book was verry well told. My favorite part was the ending. I cant tell you this part so it does not give it away. My other favorite part was when it graphic descriptions of when her brother and mother were killed right in front of her. I hope you enjoy as much as I did.
