Jewish Book World
Based on a true incident that occurred in Billings, Montana, this story begins when a rock is thrown through Isaac's bedroom window in which a menorah is displayed. Frightened, he removes it. Afterwards, the mother goes on television and to a meeting to talk about hate crimes in the community, and inspired by stories of the Danish people helping their Jewish neighbors during World War II, the whole town puts menorahs in their windows to take a stand against bigotry. Reassured, Isaac replaces the menorah in his window. Realistic soft-focus oil paintings dramatize the action and personalize the characters. Background information is provided in the introduction. A great book for discussing prejudice.
