New Products: Helmuth Hubener Story Told for Kids

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- The story of three LDS youths who defied the Nazi's during World War II is the subject of a new book from the national publisher Holiday House, which came to Mormon News' attention this week. While the story has been told before, it hasn't been written for a teen-age audience before. In addition to that book, "Brothers in Valor," New titles include books by Elder Stephen D. Nadauld, a re-issue of B.H. Roberts' "Missouri Persecutions" and a local history covering the Church in Palmyra, New York, written for last year's Temple dedication.

Elder Nadauld's book, "Justified by Faith" looks not only at faith, but Justification and Grace. His approach is very practical, putting his subject in down-to-earth, everyday terms. Also new is a book by Ted Gibbons, "Life is a Test," which looks at the purpose of life as if it was a school test.

Brothers in Valor : A Story of Resistance by Michael O. Tunnell
Holiday House
Book; National Publisher; Fiction; Mormon Characters $16.95

Fictionalized version for teen-agers of true story of German resistance to Hitler by three LDS youths, Rudi Ollenik, Helmuth Hubener and Karl Schneider. Troubled that the branch leader, President Zander, runs the Hamburg group "as if God, church, and Hitler were all in league," the boys join Hitler youth groups so as not to make trouble for their parents, but they loathe the Nazis. After World War II begins, Helmuth decides to fight back. He listens to the BBC broadcasts; writes up the British news to expose lies in the German media and, with Rudi and Karl's help, distributes his handbills through mail slots and in telephone booths. Caught in 1942, tried and tortured, Helmuth is executed while the other boys are sentenced to prison terms.
