Each of these profiles of Dutch Jewish children and young adults who survived World War II in hiding are compelling and distinct, but across the narrative there is also a sense of continuity. This is in part a factor of geography in a country as small as The Netherlands, the children in hiding were often aided by the same people and traversing the same locales in their escapes. In most cases, they were also children whose families had been given an initial exemption by the Germans often middle-class families with skills considered useful. Some of the children were hidden in situations where they felt loved and cared for and formed lasting bonds with the people who took them in; people they came to think of as family. Some were treated awfully, or had to move around often. Some whose parents survived never regained a sense of belonging or connection to their families when they were reunited. Regardless of their experiences in hiding, it抯 clear all of them had to deal with the lasting impact. A final chapter includes photographs of each of the individuals profiled as older adults.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
