Okay, so this book was okay. It was neither horrible or extraordinary. I did enjoy quite a few stories within the book, and could see how ever symbolic they could be. With that being sad this is your run of the mill Holocaust book. I do like learning about the Holocaust, and finding it interesting and very depressing. So, this book was just about that for me: interesting and depressing. It was a good read, and I think that teachers should use this book when the teach the Holocaust.


Holocaust: I am just going to sum this all up into one category, because there isn't any sex, drug, or rock and roll in this book; however, it does contain stories that have what happened in the Holocaust in them-gassing, shootings, taking the Lord's name in vain, etc. It was all very light in manner, and it was nothing too graphic.
