Nine-year-old Felix has been placed in a Polish orphanage for safety by his parents. When the German soldiers come and start burning the nuns' books Felix knows he must escape and make sure his parents, who are booksellers, are safe. His journey through Nazi-occupied Poland is a dangerous one, but Felix is taken in by Barney, a dentist who hides and protects Jewish children. When they are discovered, Barney is forced to make the ultimate sacrifice. A tragic (and true) story simply told, shot through with flashes of comedy and courage, friendship and hope. One you can't help thinking about when it's over. Watch out for the sequel, Then, in 2009.
