It was the only safe place they knew.

Annie was ten when she and her sister Sini had to leave their father, mother, and older sister to hide in the upstairs room of a remote farmhouse in Nazi-occupied Holland of l940. For Annie and her family were Jewish and therefore in great danger, as was the generous Gentile family who took the sisters in.

Mrs. Reiss's picture of the Oosterveld family with whom she lived, and of Annie and Sini, reflects a deep spirit of optimism, a faith in the ingenuity,backbone, and even humor with which ordinary human beings meet extraordinary challenges. In the steady, matter-of-fact, day-by-day courage they all showed lies a profound strength that transcends the horrors of the long and frightening war. Here is a memorable book, one that will be read and reread for years to come.
