Michael Morpurgo’s Waiting for Anya.

It is World War II and a young shepherd named Jo stumbles on a dangerous secret: Jewish children are being smuggled out of Nazi-occupied France to the safety of Spain. When German soldiers move into town, things become much more difficult. Jo, his grandfather Henri and accomplices, Benjamin and the Widow Horcada, devise a plan to get the children across the border. The plan requires the whole town to help the children escape and relies on the German soldiers not noticing what is happening. But if they are caught, their lives will not be worth living…
