During World War II, when Hendrik, the young son of a fisherman in Amsterdam, notices his Jewish friends being barred from school and ostracized by their other classmates, he is determined to stand by them. His parents have always told him to fight injustice. So when Hendrik realizes what Hitler's policies ultimately mean for his Jewish friends and their families, he hatches a daring plan to help smuggle them out of the country by boat. This latest addition to the award-winning Holocaust Remembrance Series teaches young readers the value of compassion, courage, and sticking to one's convictions—even in the face of unthinkable evil.
Canadian Children's Book News - January 1, 2006
"Photographs from the era enhance the story's truthful inspiration and help the reader see another side of that time, the life of those whose nation is occupied. Suspenseful, fast-paced and detailed with historical information, this book will appeal to readers who are fascinated with the adventure of world historical events."
