Simone Arnold is an ordinary French schoolgirl—spirited and stubborn. Then the Nazis march in, demanding complete conformity. Friends become enemies. Teachers spout Nazi propaganda. School officials recruit for the Hitler Youth. Simone's family refuses to heil Hitler as Germany's savior. They are Jehovah's Witnesses, and they reject Nazi racism and violence. The Nazi Lion makes them pay the price.
Simone Arnold Liebster was born on August 17, 1930, and endured discrimination and persecution as a young Jehovah's Witness in Nazi-occupied France and Germany. In 1956 she married Max Liebster, who survived six years in five Nazi camps. The Liebsters have shared their experiences with educators, students, and the public in Europe and North America. They established the Arnold-Liebster Foundation in 2002 to educate future generations in the lessons of history.
I had been trying to find this book for months & then I thought to check on Overstock. The price was great & it shipped very quickly! This book really allows you to feel the emotions and have a clear understanding of what this brave little girl stood up for during Nazi Germany. I did shed many tears, but this is the sad reality of things that occurred and how one young girl got through unimaginable times. Everyone should read this book, Young and old! My 10 year old daughter is also reading it as well. I highly recommend it! This young girl shows great courage and strength.
