I'm not a reader, but I finished this book in under a week. My late boyfriend had this book. I passed it on to a coworker who read it in a couple of days, passed it on to my mom who passed it onto my aunt, then her daughter than later a friend and we never saw it again :( this is history that should stay in our minds and hearts, great book, but sad. I managed to find a hard copy online from amazon. Haven't read it again but it is the first on my list !!!!
Stolen Years was published in 1981. The classic, Anne Frank: Diary of a Young Girl. was published in 1947. I wish I had read Anne Frank more recently and could compare and contrast the two. Stolen Years is an excellent example of adult-nonfiction describing a young Jewish girl's experiences during World War II. It is a worthwhile read of a horrific period in history that remains with the reader long after closing its pages.
I first read this book in high school after discovering it in our school library. It had such a profound effect on me that I have reread it many times since. It is a gripping story of survival and loss from one young girl's life during the Holocaust. The book is so detailed, and so well written that you will feel as if you are being dragged, right along with Sara, into hell and back again.
I read this in sixth grade and had a similar experience to another reviewer - I was horrified by the Holocaust and needed to read more, which of course I did. This is still the most powerful of all the Holocaust books that I've read.

It's a testament to this book that as I populate my Goodreads books that I remembered this book from reading it (repeatedly) as an adolescent. I still remember moments from this book. Beautifully written.
I had to read this book for my high school freshman History class. I was so enthralled by this book that I couldnt put it down. It was a real eye opener!
