Just as the Nazis are rising to power, Helmuth Hubener, a German schoolboy, is caught up in all the swashbuckling bravado of his time. The handsome stormtrooper uniforms, the shiny jackboots and armbands, the rousing patriotism all serve to draw him into this bright new world full of promise and hope. In the beginning his patriotism is unwavering. But every day the rights of people all over Germany are diminishing. Jews are threatened and their businesses are being destroyed. The truth has been censored, and danger lurks everywhere. Anybody can turn on you. The world has turned upside down: Patriotism means denouncing others, love means hate, and speaking out means treason. How much longer can Helmuth keep silent? Told in flashback, Newbery Honor Book author Susan Campbell Bartoletti magnificently explores the life of a heroic German youth who dared to stand up against the Nazi regime.
From the Publisher:
Raised during the rise of the Nazi party, Helmuth believed all that he was taught and so joined the Nazi party with all the pride in the world, yet as the country he once knew begins to fall apart and he witnesses so many horrific events unfold, Helmuth finds it increasingly difficult to remain both loyal and silent.

Praise

"[Bartoletti] does an excellent job of conveying the political climate surrounding Hitler's ascent to power, seamlessly integrating a complex range of socioeconomic conditions into her absorbing drama of Helmuth and his fatherless family." 2/11/2008

"The teen's perspective makes this a particularly gripping way to personalize the history...." 2/15/2008
