Your name is Renée Ruth Kapp Hartz's story as a hidden child in Nazi-occupied France /

In Nazi-occupied France, 4-year-old Ruth Kapp learns that it is dangerous to use her own name. As a relative of German Jews, she and her family are targeted for deportation. In the narrative, Ruth recounts her experiences as a young Jewish girl in war-torn France, and the courage of ordinary people from the French countryside who risked their lives to protect her and her family as they flee from one home to another, one step ahead of the Gestapo. Separated from her parents, Ruth spends the rest of the war in a Catholic convent and told to forget her parents and religion. A paper bag containing a few pieces of candy smuggled to her is her only clue that her parents are still alive. Years after the war, she returns to France and once again journeys into the countryside to find out what happened to the families that looked after her.
