Newbery Honor Winner Susan Campbell Bartoletti explores the life of a heroic German youth who dared to stand up against the Nazis.

Bartoletti has taken one episode from her Newbery Honor Book, Hitler Youth, and fleshed it out into a thought-provoking novel. When 16-year-old Helmuth Hubner listens to the BBC news on an illegal short-wave radio, he quickly discovers Germany is lying to the people. But when he attempts to expose the truth with leaflets, he’s tried and executed for treason.

  • AudioFile Magazine Seventeen-year-old Helmuth HŸbener, a German schoolboy, awaits execution for treason by the Gestapo. As he sits in his jail cell, he reflects on his childhood. Just seven in 1935, he was caught up in the growing patriotism, full of promise and hope. However, the ensuing years find him sickened by the Nazis' oppression of the Jews, their invasions of neighboring countries, and their suppression of the truth. The story unfolds in the third person, which David Ackroyd narrates with an American accent. He deftly switches to a German accent during dialogue, adding richness to the listening experience. Ackroyd convincingly conveys Helmuth's courage as he dares to speak out for the truth. An author's note giving back story about the real Helmuth HŸbener and a Third Reich timeline are included.
