I can't say i enjoyed this book, because it caused me pain, although i appreciated it just as much. It is incredible how human beings can act towards each other. The holocaust happened so we can learn from it. I think that this book is an excellent way to look into the past, and understand the horrible things that people actually had to endure, although truth be told, the experiences of the characters of this book are pretty mild, compared to the stories I've heard, firsthand, from survivors. Still, it's a start, and i want as many people as possible to really get into these holocaust books. It can make the world a better place.
it was amazing and opened my eyes to what happened

this book brought tears to my eyes, laughter from my mouth and realy realy allowed me to see what had happened. after reading that book i researched holocust and found there is one going on right now! currently i am doing all i can to help. this book is amazing and you need to read it at this age too.(that age would 11-13)
The Devils Arithmetic is a story about a young girls journey through the Holicoust. This book is very realistic and true. Its also very appropriate for any age.
If your interested in the Holicoust you should defently put this on your list of books to read.
