Winner Description: 
for The Boys from St. Petri by Bjarne Reuter, 1994, translated from the Danish by Anthea Bell
Winner Blurb: 

It is 1942, and Denmark has been occupied by Germany.  A group of teenage boys dare to do what their elders have not--show resistance to the Nazi invaders.  According to Batchelder Committee Chair Linda Perkins, this is "more than just a war story well told, it is about the complexities of human personalities, about conflicts between classes and within families, and about the pervasiveness of bigotry.  Bell's translation is fluid and seamless.  The author's details leave no doubt of the authenticity of the setting."
