Facing The Lion is an inspiring autobiographical account of a young, non-Jewish girl standing up for her beliefs in the face of overwhelming pressure to conform to the Nazi propaganda machines. Simone refuses to accept the Nazi party and her simple acts of defiance lead her to be persecuted by her school and local officials, and ignored by friends. She is put in a harsh reform school until the end of the war.

This book is awesome! I loved the length of it, too (I prefer longer books).

Before the Nazi regime takes hold, little Simone and her family become Jehovah's Witnesses. During the war, the family is put through intense hardship and persecution because their faith will not allow them to "heil" Hitler instead of Jesus Christ as their savior. Hitler's hateful campaign eventually leads to the death of many Jehovah's Witnesses, but their victory over him was complete because of their hope, faith, and firm resolve.

This is the story of one child of Jehovah's Witnesses who, in spite of separation from her parents, stands firm in her convictions.
