'Once' by Morris Gleitzman follows the tale of Felix, a young Jewish boy, as he stays in a Catholic orphanage during WW2.  Felix's parents have placed him here so that he would avoid going to a concentration camp. One day, Felix decides to escape the orphanage... This book would be useful during a WW2 topic where the children could write their own diaries, or they could write how they think the book could alternatively end.
