520    This compelling first-person account is an eye-opening 
       depiction of life in occupied Holland during World War II.
       As a twelve-year-old girl, Cornelia Fuykschot experienced 
       the invasion of her country by the Germans and the 
       resulting loss of freedom, scarcity of food, and steady 
       deterioration of normal, everyday life. Fuykschot 
       describes how she and her family were forced to adapt to 
       the conditions of a police state. Though still a child, 
       she took on the responsibility of begging for food and 
       helping to hide her father from the Nazis, who had shipped
       every man they could find to the munitions factory to work
       for the German war effort. Fuykschot vividly illustrates 
       the strength, ingenuity, and dogged determination of 
       ordinary people struggling to maintain some semblance of 
       normalcy against a backdrop of bombing raids and daily 
       Nazi terrorism. 
520 8  Hunger in Holland is a moving chronicle of a horrifying 
       period in world history, a testament to both survivors and
       victims, and a valuable lesson for those who have never 
       known the terror of war.
