This is a GREAT read. I read it in one day. I would not exactly categorize this with Young Adult, though some would. It is graphic in details. If you are looking for a "true story" read instead of a work of fiction this is it. Also recommended to the reader who is trying to learn more about what daily life was like in the Concentration camps.
A very moving book. I was actually surprised at how much it affected me. I think it is a worthwile read for young adults. However, I would reccomend reading it ahead of time before you have your child or class read it.
Is a great book to let kids learn abit more about the holocaust, gives information that is age appropriate and in easy to understand language. Should be a must read for any young student.
This Holocaust memoir describes what happens to Elli Friedmann who is 13 when the Nazis invade Hungary in 1944. "I Have Lived A Thousand Years" is a bittersweet chronicle of the power of faith and perseverance. The author never lost hope that she would somehow survive the horrors that she witnessed day after day. Her testament is a worthy addition to the literature of the Holocaust, and one that younger readers will be able to identify with.
This might be a little hard for younger readers to take, but for the more mature ones, this is a wonderfully written first hand account of the Holocaust.
