Hetty Werkendam was 13 years old in 1943 when she was transported to the repatriation camp at Westerbork. From there she was sent to Belsen to live in the """"Children's House,"""" where she witnessed firsthand the horrors of the Holocaust. Her account of life in the Children's House-where the awfulness of Belsen was countered by the inspirational figure of the children's mentor Sister Luba-provides a painful but unusually uplifting Holocaust memoir.
