The Meeting of Anni Adams-The Butterfly of Luxembourg by Lonnie D. Story

This book is the story of Anni Adams, a teenager living through World War II in Luxembourg. Although it is not a book about the details of the holocaust itself, it does describe the life of a teenager living through the time of the holocaust watching her friend being taken away and the treatment of the Jews. It shows you how much the people were affected that lived in the countries that Hitler conquered and gives you an entirely new look on the war. The value of hope and perseverance is seen in Anni and her family as they live through their experiences and keep their faith in God and in man. It was a really great read that I enjoyed and will share with friends and family.

About the Book:

Born November 11, 1926 Anni Adams grew up traveling throughout central Europe with her professional gymnast father. By the age of fourteen, she had been throughout Luxembourg, Germany, Belgium and France. Then came the Nazi invasion. Everything Anni had known came unraveling at the seams. Evacuated from Luxembourg, she survived the poverty, humiliation, and uncertainty of refugee camps following the German occupation of her homeland. She eventually returned to her home and the submissive lifestyle of the Nazi rule, which she quietly resisted for more than four years.
