Since I love reading accounts of the Holocaust, I definitely enjoyed reading this book. It includes pictures and statistics to help bring to life the story she is recounting. I think that this book does a great job of showing the horror that took place through all of the events the Jewish people had to endure. From the ghetto's, the train rides, and then the concentration camps, this book gives you a vivid picture. I like how it is repeated throughout the book that normal people in a normal world cannot imagine the horrific actions of the Nazi's. This book is great for older middle schoolers but not anyone younger. I would reccommend this book to anyone interested in history or a truly great story.
