Hidden Child


  • Millman’s telling is quiet, but his understated art reveals terrible memories, including the wrenching images of Papa waving good-bye from behind barbed wire and Mama bribing a prison guard to take him away. This poignant account is a must for the Holocaust curriculum, and it will grab readers older than the target audience–including adults.
