A moving and historically accurate graphic novel, brought to you by the Anne Frank House and illustrated by one of the Netherlands’ top graphic artists. When Jeroen finds an old scrapbook from the Second World War in his grandmother’s attic, a painful family secret is revealed. For the first time, Jeroen hears about his grandmother’s experiences as a girl living in Amsterdam during the German occupation, and about the loss of her Jewish best friend, Esther. As the story unfolds, ordinary people in different roles – from victim to bystander, collaborator to perpetrator – make the most difficult, important decisions of their lives. But after hearing his grandmother tell her story, Jeroen makes a surprising discovery…
Drawn in vivid colour comic strips, this punchy and immediate narrative offers an unusual and striking window onto the events of the Second World War. Vivid commentary full of historical detail helps children to get a complete picture of what happened, from Hitler’s rise to power to the war in the Pacific.
