Written by Jesper Lundqvist and illustrated by Fideli Sundqvist

In this book, Jesper Lundqvist talks about not only the war and the holocaust, but also what led up to it. In the same way as with other violence, there is a normalisation process, and we all need to know about it, even younger children. Only then can we interpret what is happening and understand what it can lead to.

What happens when you start changing the world around you instead of yourself? Much of what creates fear and anxiety has to do with our society.

By looking at structures and norms and showing what tools are available for change, anxiety and frustration can be turned into faith in the future and meaningfulness. Sequel to TAKE CHARGE: BECAUSE IT WORKS.
