Not yet rated | write a review
During the days of Nazi terror in Europe, many Jewish children were taken from their families and hidden. Régine Miller was one such child, who left her mother, father, and brother when she was 10 years old. Utterly alone as she is shunted from place to place, told to tell no one she is Jewish, she hears that her mother and brother have been taken by the SS, the German secret police. Only her desperate hope that her father will return sustains her. At war's end she must learn to live with the terrible truth of "the final solution," the Nazi's extermination camps.

The people who sheltered Régine cover a wide spectrum of human types, ranging from callous to kind, fearful to defiant, exploitive to caring. This is a story of a brave girl and an equally brave woman to tell the story so many years later.

From Our Editors

Imagine being told at age 10 that you are to tell no one who you are, hiding your true identity all the time. That is exactly what Régine Miller had to do, hiding with various Belgian families, yearning for information about her parents and brother. Tell No One Who You Are is her extraordinary story, tracing her family life in Brussels before the German invasion, her mother's illness and brother's conscription and her three years of hiding. At the end of the war, she must deal with the terrible truth of "the final solution."

Editorial Reviews

"Buchignani…[recreates] Régine's experiences with aching clarity…he conveys both a human drama and a chilling moment in history."
