Francesco Tirelli’s Ice Cream Shop by Tamar Meir
Illustrator: Yael Albert
Francesco Tirelli loved to eat gelato from his uncle’s cart. So when he moves from Italy to Hungary, Francesco decides to open his own ice cream store. There young Peter learns to love ice cream as much as Francesco did. But when the war comes and Francesco closes his shop for the winter, he uses the shop for a special purpose―to hide his Jewish friends and neighbors from danger. This heroic tale is based on true events.
