The most amazing holocaust book I have ever read, kept crying but couldn't put the book down.

this book was terrible. it made my daughter cry for days

This is a great book that is good for younger people who want to get a rough idea of what the Gypsies, Jews, and Poles suffered through. It doesn't go into a lot of gruesome detail about things that go on in the camps, which makes this ideal for the younger reader. It is still difficult to read and made me cry, but the things that go on in this book don't quite describe ALL of the horrors that people suffered through in the concentration camps.

Used this book for a World War 2 history project. Ended up with an A on the project, and the book is a great read. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in the Holocaust, World War 2, or someone just looking for a good read.
