Hetty's family was torn apart following the German invasion of the Netherlands. Rounded up by the Nazis and then separated from their parents, Hetty and her brothers were sent to the Children's House, within Belsen concentration camp. As one of the eldest, Hetty became the 'Little Mother', helping to care for not only her siblings, but the other children as well. In a direct and powerful style, Hetty recalls one of the remarkable, largely untold stories of the Holocaust - the extraordinary struggle and survival of this group of children through these terrible years.

    Comments about The Children's House of Belsen:

    We had the amazing experience of travelling through Poland and Czech Republic and Berlin with the children (young teens) while listening to audio recording of this book recently. Didn't visit Belsen Belsen but other Concentration Camps -Auschwitz/ Mathausen and many war museums and memorials through the region.
    It was a very moving account of the horrors of that war and part of a very informative trip learning about the history of the period and the horror of the WW2 german regime and how we need to value our democratic freedoms always. It doesn't take much for such events to unfold as we are continually reminded today. We need to continually educate our children/ ourselves to be respectful and tolerant for all peoples and religious beliefs.To see such love and hope shining through indiviuals in such horrific circumstances is in itself inspirational.
