Overview

"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 that they are here. Do you understand?"

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

Twenty school children hide ten Jewish children from the Nazis occupying France during World War II.

Deborah Zink Roffino
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.

    Pretty Good

    This book is a short story about children facing the troubles of the world. This book shows how even if we have different beliefs we can still get along and help on another. Very good read. Great for kids.

    A reviewer

    When I was a child I read this book and loved it. Now as a teacher I just spent the last hour looking for this book online to share with my students. I have often thought of this book and this story over the years. I can't wait to share it and its lessons.

    Too Unrealistic

    Although the concept of the story is a good one, and although the actual story is intriguing, the characters are too unrealistic for me. Simply stated, children are not so selfless and their problem solving abilities are not so quick. It's important (and nice) to think we would all be unequivocally brave under such circumstances, but that's not realistic, is it?
