In fact, it seems to her that's what they do every Jewish holiday. But this year's Passover Seder will be different-Hannah will be mysteriously transported into the past. and only she knows the unspeakable horrors that await. Winner of the National Jewish Book Award "A triumphantly moving book.

When Hannah finds herself catapulted from modern New York to Poland in 1942, she realises that as a Jew she and her family and friends are in terrible danger. However, no one will believe Hannah when she warns of the horrors to come and history takes its course. A tale of courage, love and friendship that makes for a sobering and heart warming read.
  • This 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.

  • This 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.

  • This 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.

  • The 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.

  • I 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.

  • My 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.

  • My 8th grader had to read this for ELA and recommended it to me. It is a wonderful book! Thought provoking, tear inducing, step into a world we can only wish didn’t happen.

  • I 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.
