This is an incredible story about the holocaust, for children. Even my sons read it and liked it, and that doesn't happen so often.
A story of hope in the midst of WWII.
An EXCELLENT book for younger readers to learn more on the haulocaust.
I would fallow-up with the made for tv movie ...
A compelling fiction of the holocaust
She didn't want to attend the family Passover dinner, she was tired of hearing stories about the Holocaust. But of course she had to go.
During the Passover Seder, she opens a door to symbolically welcome the prophet Elijah, she is swept back in time to 1942, to a Polish village where everyone call her Chaya. Then something terrible happens. Nazi soldiers come to the take the villagers away.. and she knows what lies ahead. Scholastic book for ages 9-12.
What if you could experience the Holocaust and all its terror first-hand? The protagonist of this story does just that when she is transported through time and space to Poland during the occupation. A scary story that needs to be read, especially by kids who think history is "boring" or not relevant to them.
I liked this story very much, even as a grown-up. True-to-life and horrifying.
