Although this subject is difficult for middleschool children, it's one that MUST be tackled if the truth is to be told. It traces the life of a young Jewish boy in France before, during and after WWII. Isaac loses his father and mother but because of the care given him by complete strangers, is able to survive the German destruction of his people in Europe. He later pieces together his history to share with others.
The book is factual but covers this subject from a child's perspective, with actual photos of his family, and copies of documents that will help others understand what actually happened. It witnesses to the great bravery of the French (Christian and Jewish alike) who protected others with their own lives. The book is a tribute to the many Jews who didn't make it and the stamina, perception and forgiveness shown by one who did.
