One of the best books for children in recent years about World War II is Lois Lowry's "Number the Stars". The Johansen family does whatever is necessary to shelter and keep their neighbors, the Jewish Rosens, safe from Nazi terror in Denmark. This is historical fiction at its best as the author describes the heroism of Annemarie, the main character, and her family as doing their part for the "Resistance" forces against the occupying Germans.
