Summary"Walter Buchignani was a young reporter when he met Régine Miller while covering the first International Gathering of Children Hidden During World War II. He became fascinated by Miller's historic life. What followed were nearly two-and-a-half years of interviews as each memory led Miller back to her childhood... In Tell No One Who You Are, Buchignani tells the story of Miller's family life in Brussels before the German invasion of Belgium, the increasing persecution of the Jews, her mother's illness, the conscription of her father and brother, and her time in hiding. Alone, bewildered, and frightened, Miller is moved through four different homes, and through it all she is warned to tell no one her real name, or that she is Jewish... by the war's end, she must find a way to live with the magnitude of the Holocaust horror."
