by Helen Sonnet
The wartime experiences of a young Dutch girl during the Nazi occupation of Holland in WW2.

Seen through the eyes of her 11-year-old self, Jacoba Kroet's recollections of the Netherlands city of Rotterdam during the German occupation is a powerful evocation of the hardships suffered by the inhabitants of that city during World War II.

Jacoba Kroet is an 11-year-old schoolgirl, enjoying an idyllic childhood, until the German invasion of Rotterdam, when her life changes overnight.

She and her family have to endure terrible hardships and witness appalling acts of cruelty as they struggle to survive the war.

From small everyday triumphs and disappointments to great acts of bravery and desperation, Jacoba's memories provide a compelling insight into life in Holland under Nazi occupation.

Nobody who lived through those times could ever forget them.
