Timberdoodle's review
A Family Secret
A Family Secret provides a graphic novel overview of WWII from a "safe" Dutch girl’s perspective as she relates the tale of her Jewish friend who suffered through the terror of the Holocaust. Characters in the book represent a wide diversity in respect to decency – from the innocent, to the heroic resistance fighters; from the passive bystanders, to the brutal Nazis. Firmly rooted in history and delivering accurate facts along an accurate timeline, A Family Secret does a remarkable job of communicating some of the most perplexing and disturbing events in Dutch history. The story and characters from A Family Secret are intertwined and expanded upon in The Search.

Another outstanding component of Timberdoodle's 2017 Sixth-Grade Curriculum Kit!

Wow. March 3, 2015
Reviewer: Chrysta B.  
My elementary age boys were fascinated by this book. "Mom, did this REALLY happen?" The horror of the Haulocaust is presented in a way that is appropriate for children, while totally telling the truth. I am glad I bought both this book and The Search.
