Description

Born in Germany, Henri Korn was the son of Jewish-Polish immigrants who had fallen in love with German culture. Young Henri also feels very at home in Germany until the autumn of 1938 when he is forbidden to go to his school. Smuggled into Belgium, his life depends upon survival in a children’s home run by the fearsome Madame Jacqmotte, who pressured all those under her care to convert to Catholicism. This vividly told story has two main themes: the war experiences of one young boy and his continuing struggle to define his identity.
