Publisher's Summary

Like Anne Frank, Flory Van Beek was a young girl caught in the ruthless Nazi occupation of Holland. But Flory survived to recount her extraordinary story of persecution and survival. Flory and her husband, Felix, endured the sinking of a ship bound for safety in the New World, the increasing danger of the occupation, and finally a life in hiding. There, cut off from the outside world and their families, they faced the hunger and stress of daily life in confined quarters along with the ever-present threat of discovery and certain death.
This inspiring account vividly captures the terror of the Holocaust while telling a poignant story of love and courage.

Critic Reviews

"I have always believed in survivor's testimonies: they are unique. It is impossible to understand the Holocaust and its meaning without becoming acquainted with their experiences, which they alone can tell with true authority." (Elie Wiesel)

Inspiring Story

This is an autobiography or perhaps a better term is a memoir of the author's experiences hiding from the Nazis during WWII. The story is well written, clear and to the point. The narrator does an excellent job.

A glimmer of light in an otherwise tragic tale

As moving and gripping as earlier stories told of the WW2 holocaust. This harrowing tale tells the story of Holland and the personal stuggles of the people who barely managed to survive against the odds. A truely historic personal account of one girls triumph. Lest we forget!
