A Family Secret

A Family Secret is a fictional graphic novel about the Jewish people of the Netherlands during the Holocaust, written by Menno Meselaar, Ruud van der Rol, Hans Groeneweg, and Eric Heuvel and drawn by Eric Heuvel. This is the story of Jeroen, a young boy, who while going through his grandmother's attic, finds some things relating to his grandmother's Holocaust experiences. From that point, Helena explains to her grandson what happened during that horrible time in history.

A Family Secret is a full color 60 page graphic novel (for only $9.99) produced by the Anne Frank House and while it is primarily intended for young adult audiences, people of all ages will find A Family Secret to be an engaging and powerful reading experience.
