Note: 
Six year old Edith Schalb was hidden in a safe house, a forest, and a boarding school during the Holocaust. With difficulty and in conflict with her mother's instructions to "remember who you are," Edith pretends she is a Catholic. Her story, based on true events, reveals the little-known history of the village of Moissac in Vichy France, where residents knew all about the Scout-sponsored home for fugitive Jewish children and never gave away the secret. Probing the emotions of a young child during a traumatic time, this inspiring story is enhanced by black and white photographs, including a cover photo of the real Edith and her doll.
