During the Holocaust, thousands of Jewish children were separated from their families and hidden in order to save their lives. In Belgium, the focus of this book, Roman Catholic convents were central to this dangerous rescue effort. Suzanne Vromen has interviewed many of the children who were saved, and also the nuns and Mothers Superior who took the huge risk of concealing these innocent children. All of their voices are heard in this book and they paint a vivid picture of the hardships and dangers endured under the occupation, and the secrecy required to prevent discovery of the Jewish children. Although they had been saved from the Nazis, the hidden children would have to cope with the trauma of separation from their parents, the disruption of their childhood, the ambiguities of their religious situation, and the difficulty of resuming their identity after the war.
