Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.Starred Review Only 12 children survived the Lodz ghetto, and Roy s aunt Syvia was one of them But for than 50 years, Syvia kept her experience to herself It was something nobody talked about Roy didn t know, and she admits that she didn t want to know She always avoided Holocaust history She was afraid of it when she was growing up, there was no Holocaust curriculum, no discussion just those images of atrocity, piles of bones, and skeletal survivors being liberated Her father, too, was a survivor, but he seldom spoke of those years, and with his death, his story was lost But a few years ago, Roy s aunt began to talk about Lodz, and based on taped phone interviews, Roy wrote her story, presenting it from the first person viewpoint of a child, Syvia, in simple, urgent free verse in the present tense Each section begins with a brief historical introduction, and there is a detailed time line at the end of the book.Syvia is four years old in 1939, when the Germans invade Poland and start World War II A few months later, her family is forced into the crowded Lodz ghetto, with than a quarter of a million other Jews At the end of the war, when Syvia is 10, only about 800 Jews remain only 12 of them are children Syvia remembers daily life yellow stars, illness, starvation, freezing cold, and brutal abuse, with puddles of red blood everywhere, and the terrifying arbitrariness of events like the story of a boy who went out for bread and was shot by a guard who didn t like the way the boy looked at him When the soldiers first go from door to door, ripping children from their parents arms and dragging them away, her father hides her in the cemetery For years thereafter, she s not allowed to go outside In 1944 the ghetto is emptied, except for a few Jews kept back to clean up, including Syvia s father, who keeps his family with him through courage, cunning, and luck As the Nazis face defeat, Syvia discovers a few others hidden like her, children of the cellar When the Russians liberate the ghetto, she hears one soldier speak Yiddish, and the family hears of the genocide, the trains that went to death camps At last they learn of the enormity of the tragedy neighbors, friends, and cousins all dead There s much to think t and talk about as the words bring the history right into the present
