I read it in middle school over 20 years ago and it always stayed with me. My teacher had some WWII veterans come visit us and speak with us after reading the book. Now that I have my own daughter who is 9 I bought this book and read it to her. It was just as moving, educational, and an amazing true story as I remembered.1 of 1 people found the following review helpful. History of Jewish people taken to RussiaBy S RoseI got this book to read
for my book club. I had never heard of it before. It was really good. I was interested especially in the history of Russia and the Jewish people there during World War II. I previously knew nothing about it. Would recommend this book to all, especially teens and young people.0 of 0 people found the following review helpful.
