Description

1942. The Jewish Ghetto in Amsterdam.

When Jozef and Trudi’s father dies in a concentration camp after being falsely arrested in 1941 as a saboteur, their mother goes into hiding, putting them in a children’s home for their safety. But when a decision is taken by the Nazis to kill all Jews including children, they are destined for deportation to a concentration camp and almost certain death.

Their 22-year-old cousin, a nurse working in the Jewish hospital, decides to rescue them. Can Hetty save her cousins from the dangers and threats that face them all? Don’t Look for Me is based on a true story of love, loss, escape, and survival. It’s the story of a rebellious and determined young woman and her young cousin in the Nazi occupied Netherlands during WW2.

Three quarters of the Jews living in the Netherlands in 1940 were killed during WW2. This is a story of survival against the odds.

Don’t Look For Me by Ann Donovan
Book 56 of 2023
⭐️⭐️⭐️ ⭐️/5

Don’t Look for Me follows a Jewish family during the German occupation of the Netherlands during WWII. The story specifically follows Jozef “Joop,” and Hetty. I read an abundance of WWII books and you don’t find many books centering around the Netherlands. So, I enjoyed learning about a different parent of Europe and how the occupation the Jewish population there.

The characters were well-rounded and the story was not romanticized, as many historical fiction books can be, which made it read as an authentic story affecting a family during WWII.

Don’t Look for Me is fast paced and hard to put down. It’s based on true accounts of life in the Netherlands during the WW2 German occupation. Hetty is the author’s mother-in-law. Very well done.
