The upstairs room by Johanna Reiss( Book )

"When the Germans occupied Holland during the Second World War, many Jews were forced to go into hiding. This story, based on the author's own childhood experiences, tells how Annie and her sister Sini endured over two years' confinement in the upstairs room of the Oostervelds' farmhouse. The small incidents that made up their daily lives, their fears, tensions, moments of frustration and boredom as well as danger, and their relationship with the family that had befriended them, form the basis of this moving and compelling novel." -- back cover

For the last two years, the radio news has brought trouble to eight-year-old Annie de Leeuw's home. When Father hears how Hitler is treating the Jews, he wants to move the family to America.

When her friends begin to disappear, Father says the family must hide. Suddenly Annie and her older sister find themselves with strangers in a faraway village-and they can't leave the upstairs bedroom.

Quando nel 1940 la Germania occupa l'Olanda, Annie è solo una bambina, e non capisce perché i suoi amici non vogliono più giocare con lei. Sarò colpa di quelle assurde leggi contro gli ebrei?

Chiuse in una stanza segreta, con la paura costante di essere scoperte, Annie e Sini creano un mondo tutto loro, fatto di fantasia, di piccole cose e di grandi sogni. (abstract dell'editore)

A hidden life : a memoir of August 1969 by Johanna Reiss( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

For years, Johanna Reiss' American husband, Jim, encouraged her to return to Holland to chronicle the two years, seven months, and one day she had spent hiding from the Nazis in rural Usselo, Holland. In 1969, she finally made the trip. Accompanied by Jim and their two young children, Reiss intended to spend seven weeks researching the book that would eventually become The Upstairs Room, her Newbery Honor-winning account of her time hiding in the attic of a farmhouse in which for a time a contingent of Nazi soldiers was billeted. But unknown to the millions of people who went on to read her beloved classic, behind the dark and painful story of the book was a still darker tale: Reiss' husband returned to America early and committed suicide at age thirty-seven, leaving no note
