Praise for Inge Auerbacher and I Am a Star
“Inge Auerbacher’s second narrative—about the miraculous rebirth of hope in the heart of Jewish children—is as absorbing and as moving as her first testimony [I Am a Star].—Elie Wiesel, Nobel Prize Winning author of Night on Beyond the Yellow Star to America

“Deeply moving and true . . . I cannot think of any book on this topic which I could recommend for this age group as I do this book.”—Bruno Bettelheim, celebrated child psychologist and author
“This account of one girl’s Holocaust experience is rich for its interweaving of autobiography and historical data . . . A moving story . . . [The author’s] perspective, while chilling, pierces the heart with memorable imagery.”—Publishers Weekly on I Am a Star
“While the author’s story is personal, there is recognition of the Nazi toll on non-Jews as well as non-Jewish resistance to the ongoing horrors . . . This account will be a revelation of manageable proportions to middle-grade readers, especially those who already know Anne Frank’s story.”—Booklist on I Am a Star
“Auerbacher’s poems, incorporated into the text . . .  give a child’s perspective on the horrendous conditions in Theresienstadt without bitterness or pessimism.”—School Library Journal on I Am a Star
“A small treasure.”—The Jewish Week on I Am a Star
