Intense, pithy very brief account of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of WWII. The illustrations and story spare no grim detail of this effective fictionalization. This title would provide a solid complement to a high school classroom reading of Holocaust literature. ( )

It's World War II, and Misha's family, like the rest of the Jews living in Warsaw, has been moved by the Nazis into a single crowded ghetto. Conditions are appalling: every day more people die from disease, starvation, and deportations. Misha does his best to help his family survive, even crawling through the sewers to smuggle food. When conditions worsen, Misha joins a handful of other Jews who decide to make a final, desperate stand against the Nazis.

Heavily illustrated with sober blue-and-white drawings, this powerful novel dramatically captures the brutal reality of a tragic historical event. ( )

An exceptionally told story about the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, equally powerful in words and images. ( )

A teenage boy tells the story of what took place during the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. This book could serve as a supplemental read when studying the Holocaust and comes from a unique perspective. Illustrated throughout and a good pick for reluctant readers.
