Overview


As long as there is life, there is hope

After Mama is taken away by the Nazis, Riva and her younger brothers cling to their mothere's brave words to help them endure life in the Lodz ghetto. Then the family is rounded up, deported to Auschwitz, and separated. Now Riva is alone.

At Auschwitz, and later in the work camps at Mittlesteine and Grafenort, Riva vows to live, and to hope - for Mama, for her brothers, for the millions of other victims of the nightmare of the Holocaust. And through determination and courage, and unexpected small acts of kindness, she does live - to write the unforgettable memoir that is a testament to the strength of the human spirit.

A teenage girl recounts the suffering and persecution of her family under the Nazis, in a Polish ghetto, during deportation, and in a concentration camp.

    I am reading this book in school and it is great. It really gives you a chance to know what it was like during the hollacaust. Very sad but i highly recommend it. It will make you cry when you see what these people went throug.

    Amazing!!!!!!!!:)

    The cage by Ruth Minsky Sender, is a heartbreaking story. I absoulutely loved this book! It was inspiring, deep, and amazing. She fought for her family ( mother and her brothers), she even protected those she barely knew, her friends, and her dignity. I felt she included so many details that i could imagine each word i read. Ruth's true story made me cry and cry and cry... and at the end, i smiled. She lived to have her own family of kids and a husband. She deserves praise and applause!

    I've read this book about about 6 times since I was in Middle School, and 10 years later it STILL makes me cry. This is one of the best stories of strength I have ever read.

    @Cougar_H
    Nobody in WWII was lucky this woman lost her whole family to the Holocaust it doesn't matter how brutal or horrific it was she still lost her family and almost lost her own life many times. You should not be the person to say that you wanted a book to be more brutal especially since it was a persons life.
