    "Shocking, inspirational and forthright without ever becoming sentimental or over-emotional; a striking delivery that will stay with the reader for a long time.">
    "A quietly impressive and unforgettable book which shows exactly what good non-fiction writing should be about. Striking images from Terezín are powerfully combined with first-hand accounts from those who lived there, to tell a remarkable and harrowing story few us knew much about before. By investigating life inside one camp, the author lays bare the horrors faced by everyone caught up in the Holocaust. This is an exemplary winner, which packs a massive emotional punch. We'd go as far as to call this one of the finest children's non-fiction books for many years.">
