I read this as a kid in the 1970s, and it has stuck with me all of my life. It was the first book I ever read about the Holocaust, and it had a huge impact on me. I would love to get my hands on it again and re-read it. It was so powerful -- especially a scene where Marta, a young Jewish German girl in (i think it was) Berlin, has to go onto public transportation for the first time wearing a star on her clothes. Very chilling and effective. This book started a life-long interest in this history ...more

I read this book ad a child and have been trying to remember the title for many years. (All I could remember was a scene.) Thanks to the "What's The Name of That Book???" group, I just recently found the title and ordered the book. I'll post again once i re-read this story to see if it was all I remember...

This book is a good representation of how life under Nazi invasion in Austria would have been. As you read, you could tell that the author did lots of historical investigation to make this book accurate. This book made me feel for little Marta, and other parts made me laugh at loud at her funny antics. I would recommend this book for children ages 8-13.
