Excellent book for middle school students who are studying the Holocaust. The story takes an average modern day teen, and places her in a WWII concentration camp. The reader is able to experience the painstaking and horrific events through the protagonists eyes. Any person, young or old, who feels compassion will enjoy this novel for young adults.

Publishers Weekly, 1988-10-14 The Holocaust was so monstrous a crime that the mind resists belief and the story must be made new for each individual. Yolen's book is about remembering. During a Passover Seder, 12-year-old Hannah finds herself transported from America in 1988 to Poland in 1942, where she assumes the life of young Chaya. Within days the Nazis take Chaya and her neighbors off to a concentration camp, mere components in the death factory. As days pass, Hannah's own memory of her past, and the prisoners' future, fades until she is Chaya completely. Chaya/Hannah's final sacrifice, and the return of memory, is her victory over the horror. The book's simplicity is its strength; no comment is needed because the facts speak for themselves. This brave and powerful book has much it can teach a young audience. Ages 10-14. (Oct.)
