Product description

Guardian Angel House is a very personal undertaking from author Kathy Clarke. Drawing on the memories of her mother and aunt, Kathy tells the true story of two young Jewish girls: Susan and Vera, who in German-occupied Hungary suddenly find themselves removed from the family home and sent to a convent to be kept “safe” from the Nazis. Here they discover the meaning of humanity as the nuns valiantly risk their lives every day to save 120 Jewish children.
