What makes this memoir powerful is it's told in an oral history format. Readers can feel the loneliness, horror, that the sisters must have felt during this time. The memoir also personalizes what it must have been like to be a child witnessing and experiencing the horror of the Holocaust. The strength of this book has to be the power of the love of these two sisters that helps them survive through a dark time in history.
There's also photographs at the end of the book that show both sisters and the concentration camp they were liberated from.
Riveting memoir of two sisters who survived the Holocaust. I feel this book would be a perfect addition to elementary and middle school libraries.
