Eve Soumerai recounts her childhood as a Jewish girl growing up in Nazi Berlin, as a teenaged refugee in the United Kingdom, and later as a young adult searching for answers in postwar Germany. This first-person memoir helps students understand the Holocaust and its effects by chronicling the life of an individual who lived through it. Eve's story engages readers as she retells chapters of her life, including memories of a birthday party, Crystal Night, life in England, and losing family and friends. The historical context of the Holocaust and the author's life unifies and clarifies events. This is the first book in the new Voices of Twentieth Century Conflict series for middle and high school students. A series foreword, timeline, glossary, and questions for discussion and reflection pertaining to each chapter are included. Primary documents and original photographs help students to experience being in someone else's shoes, making this book the perfect teaching tool for helping students understand important aspects of the Holocaust.
