Note: 
Being forbidden to go outside or make any noise - unimaginable to most children - becomes palpably real in this classic personal narrative based on the author's experiences. 10 year old Annie and her older sister, Siti, are hidden from the Nazis in an upstairs room by a family of Dutch farmers. Their two and one half year ordeal chronicles loss, fear, boredom, and frustration but it also reveals courage, humor, and boundless kindness. The earthy family who hides them is one of the most memorable in Jewish children's books. Originally published in 1972. The sequel is The Journey Back.
