  1. An interesting book that is written through memories and tells the horrifying truth about how Jews were treated. Complete with pictures. A quick, good read.

  2. I thought this was a moving book with an important theme. The writing style wasn’t especially accomplished or artful, but that highlighted the realness of the story. It was like listening to a real person talk. This book could also be used as a primary source for school work.

  3. I really enjoyed this book. It’s rare to find a book like this, one that is written by a woman who lived through something as terrible as the Holocaust. Like Ms. Lisa said, it was like listening to her telling the story, which made it sound more real. I normally don’t like non-fiction books, but this one is definitely an exception.

  4. Elly is a verry good person and i think her book is verry good and intresting it made me cry it is so sad that hilter had to to like that well you should always be nice and love eachother
