Mrs. Reiss writes that soon after she had finished Tie Upstairs Room, she found "there was still something I wanted to say, something that was as meaningful to me as the story I had told in the first book, the story of a war. & The fighting has stopped'; & treaty signed,' newspapers announce at the conclusion of every war.
The Upstairs Room book.
Sini and Annie mostly stayed in a room upstairs to be kept safe from the German soldiers. I kept wondering what I would feel like if I was forced to sit in a room every day with only my sister and enough items for me to be able to survive. Through years of living with the Oostervelds, everyone grew closer. Opoe even said to Sini and Annie on page 178, You’re closer to me than my own family. I really enjoyed this book. It took me on a journey with each of the characters, especially Annie. On top of that, not having my mom, my older sister in danger at home, and being separated from my da. here’s no way I would be able to go through all of that without going crazy.

by Johanna Reiss A classic WWII survivor story based on award-winning author Johanna Reiss’s own childhood during the Holocaust
A classic WWII survivor story based on award-winning author Johanna Reiss’s own childhood during the Holocaust. When the German army occupied Holland in 1940, Annie was only eight years old. Because she was Jewish, the occupation put her in grave danger. Most people thought the war wouldn’t last long, but Annie knew that if she wanted to stay alive, she would have to go into hiding. Fortunately, a Gentile family, the Oostervelds, offered refuge to Annie and her older sister, Sini.
As presented in Johanna Reiss' novel, based on her own experiences in Holland during World War II, (HarperCollins, 1972), Annie, the young first person narrator, and her older sister must live in an upstairs bedroom belonging to a rough but sympathetic farmer and his family. Christina Moore capably uses a youthful voice to portray Annie.
