Reviews for The Upstairs Room (2 vol.)
RatingComments
5This book was fabulous! It's definitely one of the best Holocaust books out there. It has great character development and a very suspenseful plot. Also the first person perspective tells the story in a whole new way. The book is about a Jewish family, the DeLeeuws, from Holland, who tries to go into hiding. While the Germans are throwing people out of their homes, Annie who is six, and her older sister, Sini, hide. At the same time their mother is terribly sick and their other sister, Rachel, stays to take care of her. Later in the book Annie and Sini hide in the Oostervelds, a simple Gentile farming family. The story unfolds into a wonderful relationship between the DeLeeuws and the Oostervelds. This book is a must read! Read it and learn what some people will do to save a life. I couldn't put it down and I'm sure you won't be able to either.
