Publisher Description

A stunning novel of the Holocaust from Newbery Medalist, Jerry Spinelli. And don't miss the author's highly anticipated new novel, Dead Wednesday!

He's a boy called Jew. Gypsy. Stopthief. Filthy son of Abraham.

He's a boy who lives in the streets of Warsaw. He's a boy who steals food for himself, and the other orphans. He's a boy who believes in bread, and mothers, and angels.

He's a boy who wants to be a Nazi, with tall, shiny jackboots of his own-until the day that suddenly makes him change his mind.

And when the trains come to empty the Jews from the ghetto of the damned, he's a boy who realizes it's safest of all to be nobody.

Newbery Medalist Jerry Spinelli takes us to one of the most devastating settings imaginable-Nazi-occupied Warsaw during World War II-and tells a tale of heartbreak, hope, and survival through the bright eyes of a young Holocaust orphan.

A favorite of my youth

I asked to take this from my English teacher before he donated a box and I’m glad I did. It’s a book I have read multiple times and as a kid I was inspired to draw pictures of some of my favorite scenes. It’s a good glimpse into the time period and keeps you wanting to read.

Wow

I know a bit about the Holocaust but, The main character was so unrealistic during World War 2. It’s not bad, but the character was horrible!!!
