Harboring Hope: The True Story of How Henny Sinding Helped Denmark's Jews Escape the Nazis

It wouldn’t be easy, but they had to try. It was their only chance to survive. In 1943, Henny Sinding, only 22 years old, and the crew of Gerda lll, a lighthouse supply boat, risked everything to smuggle their Jewish compatriots across the Øresund strait to safety in Sweden during World War ll. In Henny’s words, "It was the right thing to do so we did it. Simple as that." But what happened when their operation’s cover was blown and it was Henny’s turn to escape?

This nonfiction novel in verse by award-winning author Susan Hood tells the inspirational true story of how Henny Sinding courageously helped smuggle hundreds of Jewish families in occupied Denmark to safety in Sweden during the Holocaust. It's a stunning true story about courage, community, humanity, and hope is perfect for fans of Alias Anna and Alan Gratz.
