Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Why am I still alive? Why was I spared?

One night in 1944, Luba Tryszynskas questions were answered when she found fifty-four children abandoned behind the concentration camp at Bergen-Belsen. Luba knew if the Nazis caught her she could be executed.

But they are someones children. And they are hungry.

Despite the mortal dangers, Luba and the women of her barracks cared for these orphans thro-ugh a winter of disease, starvation, and war.

Here is the true story of an everyday hero and the children who gave her a reason to live.

My name is Luba Tryszynska-Frederick and this is my story. I never thought of myself as a particularly brave person, certainly not a hero. But I found that inside every human being there is a hero waiting to emerge. I never could have done what I did without the help of many heroes. This story is for them, and for the children. --Luba Tryszynska-Frederick

Synopsis:

Luba: The Angel of Bergen-Belsentells of this woman who saved the lives of dozens of Jewish children in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp.

About the Author

Michelle R. McCann, author of several books about heroes and heroines, was especially inspired by Lubas incredible story of how one womans quiet courage could move others to take risks in desperate times. Michelle lives with her husband and son in Portland, Oregon, where she writes, edits, and teaches about childrens books at Portland State University. This is her seventh book for children.

Fine artist Ann Marshall makes her picturebook debut with these luminous oil and collage illustrations. She lives in the New York area.
