Product Details

Praise

Nakedly stark accounts of circumstances unimaginable to most people today outside the pages of powerful writing like Janeczko’s. Somewhat disturbing imagery makes this book most suitable for mature readers, but its intimate glimpses of life inside the Holocaust will likely rank it among the most worthwhile teen reads for years to come.
—Library Media Connection (starred review)

Janeczko draws on factual records to imagine fictional characters, who narrate each poem in this searing collection. The inmates speak in spare, accessible free verse, and the plain words contrast with the enormity of their personal heartbreak, cruelty, and loss. …Together, the images and the poems capture unforgettable truths
