“…Wiseman has not spared the reader the awful reality of the concentration camp. In simple and direct language, Wiseman reveals the intricate dance of death at Auschwitz without sensationalizing the experience or objectifying Jutka. The naïve reader is gently but firmly guided through a Holocaust narrative that both informs and illuminates. We should not spare our children the knowledge of the depths of human cruelty and indifference. For while it seems a forlorn hope that learning history will stop us from repeating it (Rwanda, Bosnia, Sudan), we can hope that these stories will inspire our children to courage and action if – when – their moment of truth arises.” – The Globe and Mail
