I enjoyed this chapter book because of the point of view and the plot. I believe that the holocaust is a very important event in history to discuss with children. The reason that I liked the point of view in the story is because there were nine different jewish boys and girls who described their lives during the holocaust. The author does a great job when tell the stories of each child in a developmentally appropriate way for his readers. Additionally, at the beginning of each chapter, the specific child's name was specified to lead the reader through the story; this makes it easier for young children to follow along with the plot when reading about a confusing time in history. Similarly, I enjoyed the plot of the story because I believe that all of the aspects discussed were appropriate and necessary for young children to understand. For example, for each young child that reflected his or her experiences, a different concept about the holocaust was covered. One child discussed "the nazis" and another one discussed "the death march." These are just two examples to show that by offering readers with multiple different perspectives, they are able to become more knowledgeable about the historical event. The overall idea of the book is to inform readers about the experiences and hardships that many young children suffered from during the holocaust. ( )

I think this book was a great book because it was sad and interesting. It was also interesting how they survive various things. But this book explanes too much and no on how he gets out.

Overall this is a great book.
And I recommend everyone to read this great book.

This book is very touching and grabs you from the start. Reading personally stories about children in the HOlocaust is a tear jerker. I'd reccomend this to anyone who likes touching and heartwarming yet a string puller book. ( )

This book is for emotionally mature students who can handle reading about the torture of nine Jewish children during the Holocaust. Each of this kids did make it through their horrible ordeal to tell their stories, but they witnessed much suffering and bore witness to a sort of living hell. Some of them managed to escape, some pretended to be someone else.

This book would be a good companion story when learning about this topic in history. It would also be a good multicultural book and can be compared to other races and religions that have been persecuted. ( )

Gripping and inspiring, these true stories of bravery, terror, and hope chronicle nine different children's experiences during the Holocaust.

These are the true-life accounts of nine Jewish boys and girls whose lives spiraled into danger and fear as the Holocaust overtook Europe. In a time of great horror, these children each found a way to make it through the nightmare of war. Some made daring escapes into the unknown, others disguised their true identities, and many witnessed unimaginable horrors. But what they all shared was the unshakable belief in-- and hope for-- survival.
Their legacy of courage in the face of hatred will move you, captivate you, and, ultimately, inspire you.
