Peter's summer assignment for Herr Schmidt, his nightmares, and the picture, all change Peter's carefree summer plans. Set 10 years after World War II, he realizes some Jewish people still face the oppression of years past. Provocative.
Publisher Summary
Ten years after the end of World War II, Peter Liebig discovers a secret about his past that leads him to question everything, including the calm facade of his town, Rolfen, West Germany, and his sense of comfort and belonging.

Peter Liebig can't wait for summer. He's tired of classrooms, teachers, and the endless lectures about the horrible Nazis. The war has been over for ten years, and besides, his town of Rolfen, West Germany, has moved on nicely. Despite its bombed-out church, it looks just as calm and pretty as ever. There is money to be made at the beach, and there are whole days to spend with Father at his job. And, of course, there's soccer. Plenty for a thirteen-year-old boy to look forward to.

But when Peter stumbles across a letter he was never meant to see, he unravels a troubling secret. Soon he questions everything—the town's peaceful nature, his parents' stories about the war, and his own sense of belonging.
