In the winter of 1944-45 when Holland was under Nazi rule, life for the Dutch people was extremely harsh and the future bleak. Everyone was cold and hungry. Thousands of people, especially Jews who had managed to escape transport to the death camps, were in hiding. Resistance workers bravely tried to sabotage the Germans as they fought to free Holland. But some went to extraordinary lengths — they harbored in their homes people who faced certain death.
Told through the eyes of a fictional child, this is the otherwise true story of the Braal family who, despite putting themselves and those they loved in great danger, saved many, many lives. Frans Braal, a resistance worker, and his wife, Mies, first took in an injured Canadian airman. He was just the beginning. The Braals moved to a larger place in the country, where they would be less visible, and took in anyone in need of help — Jews, children, resistance fighters and people who were starving. The Braal family has made photographs and keepsakes from the time available for use in the book. An epilogue, historical notes and glossary are included.
