"Fourteen unforgettable true stories of children hidden away during World War II. Jaap Sitters was only eight years old when his mother cut the yellow stars off his clothes and sent him, alone, on a fifteen-mile walk to hide with relatives. It was a terrifying night, one he would never forget. Before the end of the war, Jaap would hide in secret rooms and behind walls. He would suffer from hunger, sickness, and the looming threat of Nazi raids. But he would live. This is just one of the incredible stories told in HIDDEN LIKE ANNE FRANK, a collection of eye-opening first-person accounts that share what it was like to go into hiding during World War II. Some children were only three or four years old when they were hidden; some were teenagers. Some hid with neighbors or family, while many were with complete strangers. But all know the pain of losing their homes, their families, even their own names. They describe the secret network of brave people who kept them safe. And they share the coincidences and close escapes that made all the difference"-- Provided by publisher.

Each of the individuals featured lived in the Netherlands and survived World War II. A number of stories overlap with the Kindergarten the children would go to during the day while the parents stayed at the Theatre across the street. The most intriguing was that of a young woman who knew Anne Frank from school and lived fairly similar lives. The book includes maps of the individuals routes/hiding places, personal photos then and now.

7Th grade seems a bit conservative for age. However there are mild descriptions of physical harm and neglect towards the hidden children in some stories.

For each chapter there is a story of survival, courage and strength. The author was inspired to start this project by his mother who went into hiding in '42 to escape. She was only 6 years old at the time.
