When the German army occupied Holland in 1940 and marched into the town of Winterswijk, Annie de Leeuw was only eight years old. Because she was Jewish, her life was in danger. Most people thought the war wouldn't last long. But Annie knew that if she wanted to stay alive and avoid capture, she would have to go into hiding. Fortunately, a Gentile family offered asylum to Annie and her older sister, Sini. For two years they hid in the cramped upstairs room of the Oostervelds's remote farmhouse. There, Annie and Sini would struggle to hold onto hope-separated from their family and confined to one tiny room-as a frightful and endless war raged on outside their window.

Autorenporträt
Johanna Reiss grew up in Holland. After she graduated from college, she taught elementary school for several years before settling in the United States. Her first book for children, The Upstairs Room, a Newbery Honor Book, as well as its sequel, The Journey Back, focus on her life in hiding as a Jewish child during the Second World War, and the first year after the Holocaust. Mrs. Reiss lives in New York City, but makes frequent visits back to Holland and travels across the U.S. to discuss her life and the books that came from it.
