Different approach to war's end in Germany. 1955 time frame. The MC finds out he is really a Jewish child given up by his mother before she leaves for a concentration camp. ( )

This is an exceptional book. Gloria Whelan is an award winning author. After the Train is what I believe is a piece of children's literature as opposed to children's "books." This story is flawless and Whelan's ability to keep the reader glued to the page is exceptional.
