Product description

All orphans long for a home. But what if the home is with Hitler, high in his mountain retreat? A chilling tale of horror seen from the inside. There’s no safe side of the barbed wire to be on. Pierrot is an orphan – a child who needs a home. He knows nothing of the Nazis. Then he is sent to live with an aunt in a grand house at the top of a mountain. But this is no ordinary time. It’s 1935. The Second World War is looming. And this is no ordinary house. It is the Berghof – Adolf Hitler’s home. As Pierrot is taken under Hitler’s wing, terrible things are about to happen. Brace yourself for a brilliant, shocking read. Prepare to ask: “What would I have done?”

  • New from the author of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas
  • Startling look at World War II from a unique perspective
  • See what life was like in Hitler’s mountain stronghold
  • Incredible story full of drama and moral conflict
