Shadow of His Hand by Wendy Lawton

Shadow of His Hand

By Wendy Lawton
Level 6

This is the true story of Anita Dittman’s life during World War II. This is one of the most inspiring Holocaust stories I have read, and it focuses on Anita’s hope and increased faith in God as she learns that, no matter how chaotic her world seems, she has a Heavenly Father who is always watching out for her. This book is more appropriate for younger audiences than some books about World War II, as it is told more gently, with less violence and depressing details, while still illustrating the pain and suffering of the Jews.
