A Girl Called Renee
Author: Ruth Uzrad
Would you try to save lives if it could cost you your own?
Ruth Uzrad is a Jewish teenager whose life was turned upside down by the Nazi regime.
After her father was arrested in their Berlin apartment by the Gestapo, Ruth’s mother sends 13 year-old Ruth and her two younger sisters on their escape route across Europe by train, heading for the safety of Belgium.
Unfortunately, the chaos follows them to their new home.
When the Nazis conquer Belgium, Ruth and one of her sisters escape to France, leaving the youngest sister behind to be taken in by a Belgian foster family.
Later, Ruth joins the Jewish underground movement in France and takes on a false identity. With her new name, Renee, she does everything she can to save as many Jews as possible, knowing that it could cost her life.
