Review Text

  • By J.I.S. on 4 April 2010

    I have read several books about the holocaust and this one really stands out. Written for a younger market, the book has the maturity borne out by the title and the simple, frank style makes it all the more powerful. Her descriptions of the small events and blind chance that influenced the survival of all are heart-aching. There are also useful appendices listing the main events of the war and explaining the language used in the book, which would make it very accessible for anyone without background knowledge of WW2.
