“God gave us the power to be good or evil. This is our choice. Because some pick evil, we must work together to recognize and stop it.

This story was really hard for me to read honestly. I couldn't imagine experience the things that these people had to go through. However, I think that stories like these are important because they make sure that things like that never happen again. I think that older children should definitely read the story, but it won't be in my classroom.
This biography focuses on Jack Mandelbaum, who was a holocaust survivor. Jack tells the heart wrenching story of his survival. Jack was separated from his family and put through a figurative Hell. This story was really hard to swallow and I don't think that it should be in an early childhood setting. I think that this book is better suited for children in middle or high school.
