For a little book, with few words to a page, this one story packs power in every line. Follow the true story of Jennifer Roy's aunt's childhood during the Holocaust in Poland at the start of World War II. Both horrifying and fascinating, listen to history unfold through the eyes of a child. The author's aunt really lived through the events told in this story and was one of only 12 children to survive the Lodz concentration camp in Poland by the war's end.
For any teachers following this blog. I would mark this book a great read aloud that would lead to many great discussions.
