A Kid's Review on March 11, 2005
Format: Paperback
Renee', a little Jewish Girl, lives in the south of France during World War Two. The Nazis start to invade Toulouse, where she lives. Many, many Jews are forced to go into hiding. Everyone that Renee' knows is being captured, her Mom and Dad, Her Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins, are all shipped away to concentration camps. Without her family Renee' is forced to act like a Catholic, French girl and is sent away to a Catholic orphanage very deep in the country. This book is a very good look at what many Jews had to go through during World war Two. I also liked this book because it is based on a true story.

Format: Paperback
A 5-year-old girl is growing up in France, but her father is being hunted down by the police as they live during The Holocaust. She loses her name, town, and home (later on her parents-for a while). This book is her telling her story of growing up during the Holocaust.

I just finished this book, and I absolutely loved it! It has such vivid detail, and I cried several times. This book is a must-read for all ages!

A Kid's Review on October 20, 2005
Format: Paperback
This story is a good story for all ages because its about a little girls perspective as a jew being "hunted" by the French. Her father is the one that they really want though, they want to send him to a consentration camp to work for them. Their family has to decide who they can trust and who they can't and to them it's pretty hard. The little girls name is Ruth Kapp Hartz and she like every other child has to go to school to get and education, but theres one problem, she has a jewish name. Her cousin Jeanette gives her the French name Renee to disguise her. When she finally realizes that she is in hiding she gets scared of what will happen if her father goes away. The roundups of Jewish men keep happening and her father keeps getting closer and closer to getting caught. When her mother and father have to moveout they decide that Albi is the best place to go and live, because her Uncle Oscar lives there, and he has a place for them to stay.They came from Toulouse on a train late at night to barely escapethe roundup, but her Uncle Heinrich didnt make it to the train. When Ruths dad goes back to find her Uncle all he finds is her Aunt Sophie and her cousin crying because they had taken her Uncle away.As the roundups keep happening her father has to go to live in the mountains and Ruth ends up having t go to live in a convent with a bunch of nuns that keep telling her that she has no mother and father. But she knows she does and wont listen to what they say. One time that her Aunt comes to see her other two cousins that went with her to the convent she gets a bag of chocolates, you have to read the book to find out what that means. Ruth doesnt know if she'll ever get to see her family again, and she is tired of trying to live the way she did and she wanted to go home. This book is sad and happy, to find out what happens read it and find out.

A Kid's Review on May 18, 2005
Format: Paperback
Hidden Child of the Holocaust is a book about a Jewish girl named Ruth. She lives in the South of France. The French police are constantly searching for her father, so he goes to a farm in the mountains. After awhile Ruth is taken to a Catholic orphange so she will be safe from the French police and Nazis. It's a wonderful book full of sad, happy, and suspenseful times. It is always making you wonder what will happen next. It's a sad but inspiring and touching story. Some parts will fill your eyes with tears but others will have you rejoicing. Everyone should read it! I also recommend Number the Stars.

Format: Paperback
This book is about a 5 year old girl who is a Jew, living in France. As the Holocaust progresses, she gets picked on and gets treated badly in school. Finally it gets to the point where she must go into hiding, away from anyone who knows she is a Jew. Madame Kahn takes her to a convent where she is told over and over that she has no parents, that she is an orphan, and finally gets to believe that she has no parents. But then, one day, she gets to go home, back to Maman and Papa, and she finally learns what happened to her family. She finds out about her Uncle, and all of the family that did not make the last train away from the town, and cries, on the playground. This book is touching, read it today.
