Praise for Hidden Like Anne Frank A Kirkus Reviews Best Teen Book of 2014 "Like Anne Frank's, these few voices stand out and speak for the millions whose stories remain untold." -- New York Times Book Review *"Each memoir is poignant and heartrending on its own, and the compilation gives the reader a stunning sense of the horror of the Holocaust. Terrifying, haunting and powerful." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review *"These first-person stories of heroism and inhumanity explore the true scope of Holocaust atrocities, while also serving as a testament to resilience." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review *"The tales are all horrifying and harrowing in their own ways yet are marked by an unvarnished tone that conveys an immediacy that sweeps readers into the narrative, making this tragic episode of history real and dramatic. This moving and powerful title is an important addition to any history collection." -- School Library Journal, starred review"
