Puh, mir wird unwohl, wenn ich daran denke, doch es ist mir ein Bedürfnis, es euch mitzuteilen. Einst war ich ein schöner, grüner und gut geformter Apfel. Dann lag ich verschrumpelt in einem Keller unter dem Regal, ganz allein! Ab und zu kamen Mäuse vorbei und nagten an mir herum. Bratapfel wurde ich von meinem Baum und den anderen neben mir hängenden Äpfeln genannt. Dabei wussten weder meine Gleichgesinnten noch der Baum, was es bedeutete, ein echter Bratapfel zu sein. Lasst Euch die Geschichte erzählen.Show more

At the outset of World War II, Denmark did not resist German occupation. Deeply ashamed of his nation's leaders, fifteen-year-old Knud Pedersen resolved with his brother and a handful of schoolmates to take action against the Nazis if the adults would not. Naming their secret club after the fiery British leader, the young patriots in the Churchill Club committed countless acts of sabotage, infuriating the Germans, who eventually had the boys tracked down and arrested. But their efforts were not in vain: the boys' exploits and eventual imprisonment helped spark a full-blown Danish resistance. Interweaving his own narrative with the recollections of Knud himself, here is Phil Hoose's inspiring story of these young war heroes.Show more
