I would like to thank my teacher Mrs.Cooper for reading the book and watching the movie with me and the class. We have learned a lot about the concentation camps and the way Germans treated the Jews. It was one thousand tears and one thousand thoughts. I would recomend this movie to all teachers.

I am currently watching this movie in my Social Studies class. It "true to its roots" does have some disturbing/upsetting scenes that I think littler children should stay clear of. It depicts a true and devastating time in the world when the Nazi Germans ruled the majority of Europe, with a modern and mystical twist. Kirsten Dunst plays an eighteen year old named Hana, who couldn't be more unwilling to take part of her family's Jewish traditions. After drinking too much wine, she passes out while opening the door for Elijah "a Jewish tradition", and she is transported back to 1941 with her cousin, Rifka "spell check". They are captured and relocated to the East "a concentration camp", and the horrors of the Holocaust are relived throughout the "years" spent at the camp, and Hana develops an extreme sense of appreciation towards the traditions and stories she always passed up. I highly recommend this movie, but I'd say it's rather sad and they do show hanging and bleeding and more, so littler children shouldn't watch this movie. I hope you enjoy it.

I thought the movie was so good. I watched it my eighth grade year in my class because we were learning about Hitler and everything. The movie was so moving and realistic. It makes you think and really makes you feel that people of different races had it so badly back then it wasn't even funny. It makes you want to cry and its really sad. The graphics looked so real it made the movie better. I'm telling you that you need to watch this movie.
