    This is a grim, brutal, and heartbreaking book It s told from the point of view of a young eleven year old Jewish girl in Germany during the Nazi era, who is on a train to who knows where.It s exceptionally well written and an engrossing story All the characters seemed very real.I thought the author got it just right in the depiction of a child who s been lied to and deceived, knows something is not qui

    A close account of what a Jewish child might have gone through in the Holocaust, written from a hopeless perspective of someone who doesn t survive Not heavy to read, and not necessarily bringing any new information, but rather emotional charge and moral questions.

    The Holocaust is an all too popular subject for young adult literature, so it was with reluctance that I opened this book Unlike so many books in this genre, there are no real heroes, no noble acts, and no redemption in this claustrophobic tale first published in Germany Instead, this short novel focuses on the tedium, uncertainty, and unease in one railway car full of Jews making the forced journey to Auschwitz Alice,

    There are a lot of books on the Holocaust but not many of them talk in detail about the actual journeys to the camps, the trains This book, which is about as low key as it can be given the topic, is about a twelve year old girl, Alice, being deported to Auschwitz, and almost the entire story takes place in the cattle car, packed in with dozens of other miserable Jews The grimness and inhumanity of the surroundings is quite evident The wretche

    There are so many books on the Holocaust and written in so many different ways This book takes that very short time span it took to transport a group of Jews from their home by train to Auschwitz.It moves a little slow but it adds to the discomfort you are feeling as you relive those long grueling hours they spent packed in train cars meant for transporting cattle You feel their hunger, their pain, their discomfort, their confusion and fear and wonde

    This is one of the very few books, non fiction or otherwise, on this subject that I d recommend to younger people Even though the majority of this book details the train ride Alice takes to Auschwitz there is still much tragedy involved as is to be expected But it s written in a way that can be handled by young people I think Maybe because instead of putting it out there very plainly it all goes through Alice That may be why I feel this way I m really surpri
