Escape in Time: Miri's riveting tale of her family's survival during World War II Kindle Edition by Ronit Lowenstein-Malz
Told as a story within a story, 12 year old Nessya has learned that her grandmother, Miri, is a Holocaust survivor, and when she asked about it, her grandmother wrote down the story for Nessya to read. Miri tells her family's story of escaping from Czechoslovakia, just in the nick of time before the Jews there were sent to concentration camps. She tells how they had to use false papers and how they moved to Hungary. They tried to warn other Jews about what was happening, but they refused to listen until it was too late. Nessya shares her feelings about her grandmother's bravery during that time. I think this book is a well told story about the Holocaust that is appropriate for middle school age children. I received this book free to review from Netgalley.
