Hidden: A Child’s Story of the Holocaust
A sensitive graphic book for the youngest readers depicting one French, Jewish family’s experience during World War II. Young Elsa asks her grandmother why she was so sad, and her grandmother shares her story. She tells of her becoming a ‘family of sheriffs’, which immediately made her an outcast. One night her family is taken away, but she was left behind in a box. A neighbor comes and cares for her, until it is too dangerous and she must leave. A moving story told from the innocent—but learning—perspective of a young girl.
