Surviving Hitler

Author: Andrea Warren
Genre: Holocaust
My rating on a 1-10 scale: 8.5
Type: Non-fiction
Number of pages: 127
Time period: Holocaust, 1940's, World War II
Main characters: Jack
Exciting events: Concentration camps for three years!
My overall opinion: This is the incredible true story of Jack, who spent three years in the Nazi concentration camps. It has pictures, and is written in story style. Ms. Warren says she took some liberties to add in the conversation, but it's all written off of what Jack remembers. It is technically a children's book,  but I'd say no one under 12 should read it...the Holocaust is heavy material. However, if you're older and interested in the Holocaust, this is something you should read! Also includes a list of other books you could read  about the Holocaust at the end.
