Maria Andzelm was a Catholic teenager growing up in Nazi-occupied
Poland. One by one, her Jewish friends and neighbours were hauled away
to undisclosed locations, never to be seen or heard from again. Then
Maria’s family took in two Jewish men. They hid them in a box underneath
the floor of their barn. Every day, Maria brought them food to satisfy
their stomachs and books to feed their minds. She did this every day for
two years–and paid a terrible price.

story as well as the gripping accounts of five other teenagers who
willingly put their lives in jeopardy for the sake of saving Jews.
