In Budejovice, a quiet village in the Czech republic, laws and rules were introduced to restrict the freedom of Jewish people during the dark days of World War II. In a small shack on the small plot of land allocated to the village's Jewish youth, some brave young people decided to create a newspaper to show that despite the new dangers in their lives, they were still creative, energetic and adventurous. Though most of the village's Jews did not survive the war, copies of the newspaper did. The Underground Reporters chronicles how these youth held out hope for a peaceful world to come.
Canadian Review of Materials Magazine - December 10, 2004
It joins the many valuable contributions to the body of literature for children on this topic. The Underground Reporters can also be an inspiration for children about how the human spirit can triumph over adversity. Highly recommended.
