1. Great book! One of the things that stood out to me was that Carrie and her sister had led very quiet, ordinary, sheltered lives with their elderly father up until around the ages of 50 years, if I remember correctly. Faithful people in all the little things of life, then all of a sudden thrust into a holocaust but their lives of looking after the little things had prepared them for this particular time. Powerful!

  2. This is one of my favorites too. I remember watching the movie in sixth grade. I think it was my first introduction to the Holocaust. I wouldn’t read The Diary of Anne Frank until high school. I enjoyed your post very much 🙂

  3. All I can do is smile at this post. 🙂

    I haven’t read this one in years. (Just read God’s Smuggler about Brother Andrew and then found a child biography about him and read it aloud to the kids.)

    I love sharing meaningful reads with my kids. Love it.
