Description

Based on the experience of real-life Auschwitz prisoner Dita Kraus, this is the incredible story of a girl who risked her life to keep the magic of books alive during the Holocaust.

Fourteen-year-old Dita is one of the many imprisoned by the Nazis at Auschwitz. Taken, along with her mother and father, from the Terezín ghetto in Prague, Dita is adjusting to the constant terror that is life in the camp. When Jewish leader Freddy Hirsch asks Dita to take charge of the eight precious volumes the prisoners have managed to sneak past the guards, she agrees. And so Dita becomes the librarian of Auschwitz.

Out of one of the darkest chapters of human history comes this extraordinary story of courage and hope.

This title has Common Core connections.

    Such a good, historical, novel! He does take some liberties, but not many, and the author does detail what liberties are taken at the end. It is well-written, full of depth, and emotion. It is a hard read, but well worth the time. -Amber

    There are not enough words to express how heartbreaking and touching this novel was. This and the Nightingale have been the top 2 touching historical fiction novels I have read so far this year! I highly recommend!
