Customer Reviews

Overall a mediocre readI have read at least 7 Holocaust survivor stories to my 10 and 12-year-old children over the course of the last 2 years. I was hesitant to read this book because it is fiction, but decided to go ahead and give it a try since it had such positive reviews. This book starts off slowly and I had to stop and explain the content every 2-3 pages. The author seems to assume that you have attended a Seder (I actually have- 3 times now) and have a working knowledge of the Yiddish language (I do not). Many times the Yiddish word is used to describe something or someone, with no explanation or solid context cues to figure the word out (thank you Google).The book is very slow for the first 50-60 pages, but does get interesting and exciting when the Nazi army bursts onto the scene. The experiences that the main character experiences at the concentration camp are similar to actual occurrences I've already read in nonfiction books.At the conclusion of the book I was left to ponder, why did I read an historical fiction account of the Holocaust when there are so many biographical accounts that are much more powerfully told? 3Should be required reading in every 5th gradeMy grandson, a fifth grader, told me to read this book because his class did. It IS history, which we must remember so that it will not be repeated. The plight of the Jewish people must belong to all of us. Teach your children. 5Great readI read this book after watching the movie, to see what the contrast would be.l actually think the movie follows the book pretty closely.l would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read about the Holocaust from the experience of what the camps were like from survivors experiences. 5I enjoyed the way the author presented the story of Hannah/ChayaI read this book because it was a school assignment for my sixth grade grandson, and he wanted me to read so we could talk about it. Having said that, I enjoyed the way the author presented the story of Hannah/Chaya. Compelling, easy to read with an incredibly powerful impact. I was overcome with sadness. I am sure it must have been hard for him to process fully as how could anyone not living through that time possibly conceive of what happened to those people affected by Nazi Germany. Very well done under those sad circumstances. 4Excellent book to introduce students to WW2.I was immediately drawn into the plight of the main character as she was sent back to WW2 a few months into the war. The plight of this Jewish family was not the same for each family member, but none of them continued on with their lives untouched. As a small bonus, THE DEVIL'S ARITHMETIC explains many Jewish beliefs and traditions as they appear in the lives of the characters.I read this story aloud to both a third and fourth grade classroom. The students were spellbound as the tale unfolded. This led to many discussions and questions about why the war was fought, why the Jewish families were treated with increasing harshness. The prison camps and terrible conditions in them shocked and worried my classes.What an excellent book to help children understand what happened in ww2. 5Must readMy daughter is reading this book in school and because she is dyslexic, I have started getting my own copy of her required reading so that I can help her if she needs it. This book was so good. It did a great job of telling a story of what it was probably like in a concentration camp. Being that it is written from a 12-year-old's perspective, the situations were very descriptive. It was hard to read the names and remember who belonged to what family, but other than that, it is a very educational and captivating read. 5The Devil's ArthimaticThis is a very good book. The author takes us on a journey of remembrance. Has Hannah opens the door to let Elijah in during her families Cedar celebration, she is transported on the astounding yet horrifying journey of her ancesters as they become prisoners in a German camp during WWII. She will never forget the price her ancestors paid for their Jewish heritage at that time in history. I recommend this book to eveyone. 5Great bookThe book is just incredible. It give a new perspective that we might not have considered. Though this book is amazing it is this way - now ill tell without sharing too much - because in the book it shows a hint of reality without being real and though there furiously sad parts it adds to the feel of what exactly the Jews had gone through when dealing with this insanity. I definitely recommend this to all and I believe that children, Christian - much like myself - would enjoy this book and even parents and teachers. So I definitely think it deserves a first class 5 star rating. 5Interesting story of the HolocaustThis historical fiction tells the story of a young disinterested Jewish girl, Hannah, who is tired of hearing her Grandfather's personal stories of the Holocaust. During the celebration of the Seder, without any warning she finds herself living in the past with family in Poland. The present and the past blur - she has knowledge that no one is willing to believe. As a result she and others are put in a concentration camp where Hannah learns first hand of what her Grandfather had been speaking for so long. The young girl returns to the present Seder dinner just as abruptly as she had left, but now with a greater appreciation of her Jewish heritage and religion, and with an understanding of the significance of the numbers tattooed on the arms of her older relatives. This is well written, with an unusual telling of the Holocaust. It is not so graphic as other books covering this subject, so is appropriate for children as young as 11 or 12; but because of the subject matter, it is important to engage them in conversation and discuss the events of the Holocaust. This is a book to be shared with our younger generation - it is important not only for the Jewish people to remember this time in their history, but also for the rest of us to remember and learn. 4A book every YA should readThis should be on every YA reading list. The way in which Yolen communicates the atrocities of WWII, the way she exquisitely works in how resistance was living to tell the tale is just marvellous. It evokes a deep feeling of empathy in the reader that is so crucial to develop in young adults, while being a short and easily digested story. There are not enough stars for this book. 5
