Book Description:

This is the gripping story of a young girl and her two little sisters hidden in convents in Belgium during the Holocaust. Their mother's remarkable intuition and initiative, together with the selfless assistance and the vigilance of two righteous among the nations, George Ranson and Pere (Father) Bruno helped save them. Flora's story is one of the uncommon cases where good triumphed over absolute evil in the Holocaust; it is a tribute to those who took great risk to thwart the Nazis. The entire family survivred and Flora reflects on her parents: " I am at peace, no one killed them. They did not vanish without a trace like the millions of victims in the Holocaust. I know where they are buried and they rest in peace."
