Andree Geulen-Herscovici describes her efforts to rescue Jewish children during the war; being raised as a Catholic but deciding that she did not believe in God at 12 years old; teaching in Brussels at the time the war began and many of her students being forced to leave school because they were Jewish; taking in Jewish children and hiding them when she was 20 years old; racing against the Gestapo to rescue children; choosing to take care of children rather than adults because they were easier to hide; keeping in touch with the children she rescued after the war; and her thoughts on talking about the war.
