WE ARE ON OUR OWN
MIRIAM KATIN
This tale of a Jewish woman hiding with her daughter during the Nazi occupation of Hungary seems even more remarkable since it is the author's own history. Katin, who was only 2 years old during the ordeal, shifts back and forth between her mother's incredible odyssey and her own life later on, dealing with the legacy of that experience. Richly illustrated in pencil, this book should not be missed by anyone with an interest in history, love or faith--so anyone, really.
