    Thanks to My Mother!

    This book was absolutely amazing! I read it in a matter of two days because I just couldnt put it down. It's a great story of an eight year old girl named Susie Weksler, and her family and their struggles during the Holocaust. I am so interested in the history of the Holocaust and I have read many books about it, but never have I felt so much emotion while reading one as i did this book. It shows great strengths of a mother who is willing to do anyhting for her daughter so that she can survive, and I got out of it a great message, that no matter what, keep fighting through hard times, dont give up because in her case you can lose your life, and giving up will get you no where. I think that who ever is as interested in the Holocaust as me or anyone for that matter, should read this book because it really shows a great reality of what the Holocaust was like and what many children and families went through during this time. The concentration camps, starvation, forced labor, and brutality, and it makes you appreciate life and what we have and what we should be greatful for because compared to the life of these people in this book, and time, we have it so much easier. My rating is a 5!!

    Wonderful Book

    This is a wonderful book. It gives a first hand account of the Holocaust through a young girl's eyes. Her mother helps her live through concentration camps, ghettos and loss of family members. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in World War II or the Holocaust.

    Excellent book!

    This book was excellent! I came across it without ever having heard of it, and I loved it! It tells the story of Susie Weksler, a Jewish girl living in Vilnius, Lithuania, during World War II. When the Nazis invade, she and her family are made to live in a ghetto. They are deported to concentration camps a couple of years later and Susie survives, because of her mother's bravery. I recommend this book very much!

    Thanks to my mother

    I loved this book, and I still do! I read it alot... it is a very compelling book and very in depth. I would defonitely say that this book is better than any Anne Frank Diary entries. Thanks to my Mother is a great book, and my pages are worn and ripped from reading it soo much. I felt everything she felt... and understood and learned so much more in that book than any other Holocaust book. I hope everyone learns from it. Its a great book no matter what! I had read this book at my school for out Reading Classes... I think all teachers should use this book- ONLY this book- to learn both the harshness for men, women, and children in the Holocaust.
