Did Hitler′s daughter, Heidi, really exist? - What if she did?

It began on a rainy morning, as part of a game played by Mark and his friends. It was a storytelling game, and the four friends took turns weaving tales about fairies and mermaids and horses. But Anna′s story was different this time: it was not a fairy tale or an adventure story. The story was about a young girl who lived during World War Two. Her name was Heidi, and she was Hitler′s daughter.

As Anna′s story unfolds, Mark is haunted by the image of Hitler′s daughter. He wonders what he would have done in her place if he had known his father was an evil man leading the world into a war that was destroying millions of lives. And if Mark had known, would he have had the power and determination to stop him?

The intriguing novel poses powerful questions about a frightening period in history and will force readers to examine moral issues in a fresh, compelling light.

      Innovative introduction to a period of history written at a level suitable for 10-12 year old children.

      Also introduces some philosophical questions by listeners querying the story-teller.

          Comments about Hitler's Daughter:

          Just a few young friends hanging at the bus stop waiting for a school bus. One of them a good story teller.
          I loved the innocence of the story told in this book, based around a young girl who has no idea really, who she is and the possible ramifications for her if her existance was known. All she wants in the world is family.
