Ruddi Wobbe, Helmuth Guddat Hubener, and Karl-Heinz Schnibbe (1941)
Let it be known.
On 11 August, 1942, the People's Court sentenced 17-year-old Helmuth Hubener of Hamburg, to be stripped of his citizen's rights, and in addition, to death, because of his treasonous support of the enemy. His execution has been carried out today, the 27th of October, by the order of the chief attorney gereral of the People's Court.
I believe this book perfectly represents a true WW2 hero. Who captures the true meaning of defiance and bravery. I'm pleased to say I know the story of the boy who dared. Helmuth Hubener will forever be remembered for his brave actions, actions that no others would imagine to do at his time and at his age. This book has truly motivated me to want to know the stories of those who still remain unheard. I found a new profound appreciation for those who acted and survived WW2 .I will continue my search for more knowledge of those who lived through WW2. Your work and ability to capture people and what their thoughts and actions might have been is truly amazing. I hope you continue to write the stories of those who remain unheard. I would recommend this book to Mrs. Meadows, and anyone who is interested in WW2.
Sincerely, Your biggest fan

Hugo starts off in the book being Mutti's boyfriend, he is also a Rottenfuher. Helmuth doesn't like him but, has to deal with him as Hugo adopts him and marries Mutti.
Mutti is the hard working single mother of Gerhard, Hans, and Helmuth. She loves her children but, follows Hugo's commands, she later on marries Hugo.
Helmuth is the main character he tells the struggles of living under Hitler's control. He decides to let the people know the truth realizing the consequences.
Gerhard is the second oldest of the Hubener brothers, he known to Helmuth as a "know it all". Gerhard is later drafted into the war when he comes back home he brings home a short wave radio that will change Helmuths life.
Karl is one of Helmuth's friends. Like any good friend he warns Helmuth of the consequences of having such ideas and plans. But, like any friend he gives in and helps to make the pamphlets.
Oma & Opa
Physical description: Oma is short, aged, and with dark hair. Opa is tall, aged, and with white (facial) hair.
Character description: Both Oma and Opa are very caring they love and care for the children. They both strongly dislike Hitler.
My favorite character of the book is Helmuth. As I admire his bravery and his courage. These characteristics are rare for back then and even now. Helmuth is truly an inspirational person, as he stood for what he believed in and fought for it. His acts of courage will always be remembered.
I can relate to Karl the most. As, I try and do my best to help a friend in need. Even though I might think there idea is outrageous I would stick up for them.
Theme and Author's Purpose
The theme of the story is courage. As, Helmuth goes against Hitler using truth and conviction. Which no one at his time or of his age would ever attempt. Helmuth fights to tell the truth, the truth that Hitler has been hiding from Germany. Even when caught Helmuth shows courage by, taking all the blame. He shows many actions of courage throughout his life.
The author's purpose in this book was to inform the reader about the life of a young german boy who opposed Hitler.
