Genocide & Holocaust

In 1944, Florence, Italy is occupied by Nazi forces. The Italian resistance movement has not given up hope, though—and neither have thirteen year- old Paolo and his sister, Costanza. As their mother is pressured into harboring escaping POWs, Paolo and Costanza each find a part to play in opposing the German forces. Both are desperate to fight the occupation, but what can two siblings — with only a bicycle to help them—do against a whole army?
