Susan Goldman Rubin ever so eloquently details the life of a young, mentally and physically strong girl during her time in Terezin and beyond. Ela Stein Weissberger was only eleven years old when she boarded a train with her mother, sister, grandmother and uncle for a German ghetto in Czechoslovakia because she was  Jewish.  During her time at Terazin she becomes part of larger family of approximately 28 girls that lived together in Room 28.  The friendships that developed between these girls have become everlasting. Through countless interviews Rubin documents Ela’s experience in her own words. Ela’s quotes are powerful and moving.  This book belongs in every school classroom that studies the Holocaust.  • It provides factual information in an age appropriate way. • It is a model text on how to use interviews to gather information for writing a biography. • As a picture book, it is filled with photos of Ela’s life and her amazing artwork done while imprisoned at Terezin. The strength of Ela Stein Weissberger must be shared, celebrated and admired by everyone!
