The Book Thief
by Simon Jeruchim

“Hidden in France: A Boy’s Journey Under the Nazi Occupation” by Simon Jeruchim.  In the summer of 1942, when Jews throughout France were being rounded up and sent to concentration camps, twelve-year-old Simon Jeruchim, his older sister, and his younger brother were sent into hiding in separate foster homes around the countryside of Normandy. Their parents, unbeknownst to the children, were arrested and deported to Auschwitz, where they perished.  Above all, this is a story of survival and perseverance against all odds.

The event is cosponsored by the Southern Cayuga Anne Frank Tree Project.
