This book tells the story of the courageous and compassionate Dutch citizens who helped two young Austrian sisters avoid deportation to the death camps where they almost certainly would have perished. The sisters, Eva and Ruth, were sent by their parents to the Netherlands in order to escape the increasing persecution of Jews in their homeland.
