Abstract: Publisher's description: A young boy goes to his grandmother's attic to find old things to sell at a flea market and makes an amazing discovery. The family secret is revealed by the grandmother and so introduces the reader to the Holocaust as it affected one Dutch family and their neighbors during the Nazi occupation of Amsterdam. The authors and illustrator succinctly focus on collaborators, resisters, by-standers, helpers and victims through a compelling story line and age appropriate illustrations. This is a great educational tool to introduce middle-and-high school students to the history of the times; this book will dovetail readily with classroom curriculum.
Internal Notes: "A family secret" was originally published in 2005 in Dutch as "De Ontdekking".
