AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This is one of the remarkable, largely untold, stories of the Holocaust, a story of hope. It is a heartwarming tale that traces the extraordinary struggle and survival of a family through those terrible years.

'Hetty was just twelve years old in 1943 when her family was torn apart following the German invasion of the Netherlands.

'Rounded up by the Nazis and then separated from their parents, Hetty and her brothers were sent to the Children's House, within Belsen concentration camp. Hetty became the 'Little Mother' of the camp, helping to care for the other children.' (From the publisher's website.)
