Surviving Hitler

By Andrea Warren
Level 9

In this true story, 12-year-old Jack and his family are separated from each other when they are rounded up by the Nazis. Jack is shipped to the Blechhammer concentration camp, having no idea what has happened to the other members of his family. However, it is thoughts of reuniting with his family one day that keeps him fighting desperately for his life as he experiences terrible conditions in the camp. The back cover reads: “Award-winning author Andrea Warren has crafted an unforgettable true story of a boy becoming a man in the shadow of the Third Reich.” This book explores a very dark period of history in a way that I feel is appropriate for children. I loved the messages of hope, strength, friendship, and courage
