Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Holocaust survivor Boas bears powerful witness to what happened to ordinary families as they were crowded into the ghettos, persecuted, and murdered." —Booklist, starred review

"Boas ably guides the reader through these literary landscapes of hell, where none of the writers survived...[These] young people make the accounts more universal, and permit us to see the common humanity of each of these different witnesses." —Jewish Bulletin

"We are privy to the thoughts of five adolescents who wrote about, and then died because of, the Nazis’ persecution of the Jews." —Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, starred review
