Behind the Bedroom Wall is a great historical fiction!
Set in 1942. Korinna is an active member of a Nazi youth group. She believes that Hitler is "helping" Germany. Korinna discovers her own parents hiding Jews behind her bedroom wall. She believes her parents to be traitors until she gets to know the hidden family. Then things get bad....
It is 1942. Thirteen-year-old Korinna Rehme is an active member of her local Jungmadel, a Nazi youth group, along with her best friends. She believes that Hitler is helping Germany by dealing with what he call the "Jewish problem." Korinna, however, has a rude awakening when she discovers that her own parents are hiding Jews behind the wall of her bedroom. At first, she believes her parents are traitors, but as she comes to know the Jewish family, her sympathies begin to turn. When someone tips off the Gestapo, loyalties are put to the test and Korinna must decide what she really believes and whom she really trusts.
A story of a girl, a dedicated member of the Nazi youth group, who not only must face the fact that her parents have been helping to hide a Jewish mother and daugher.... but she herself actually gets to know and care for the two of them. I enjoyed it myself, but it would be a good read for a teenager who would like to learn about what happened many years ago in Germany.
fictional book about hiding Holocaust victims. ****
