Anita attends Christian church one Easter Sunday and recognizes she has a Heavenly Father who will not forsake her. She becomes a Christian. Through the rest of Anita's story, she finds that God provides a cover for her letting her be shielded by the shadow of His hand. Christians provide solace and shelter for her and her family though they do become separated and must labor in concentration camps and labor camps.
This is not a true work of fiction. It follows the actual life of Anita Dittman who survived the Holocaust, came to the United States, and became a speaker and author (Trapped in Hitler's Hell by Anita Dittman).
This is an intense book to read even though it is written for young readers age 8-12. It is short, thorough, engaging. I recommend it for the home library of young girls as well as public and school library collections.
