I am a high school sophomore and I chose to read this book for my research project. Personally I didn’t like this book. I felt that it was very dull and also very boring to read. It didn’t tell me much about the holocaust itself such as Adolf Hitler the Nazi people and all the historical facts on the holocaust. It really just talked about The experience that a man named Martin and what he did during the holocaust was really hoping that when I read this book that it would help me to understand the history of the holocaust and World War I and World War II.
