"A fairly mediocre memoir. The author provides no characterization for her sisters and I can't tell them apart. Important things are not explained, like how the family was able to keep little Mojshele hidden for so long. Dramatic incidents are overlooked. For example, once in the Krakow Ghetto, the author and her sister were walking along minding their own business when a Nazi decided to take some potshots at them. The author's sister was shot in the leg but survived. This could have made for an exciting couple of pages; instead, the incident was mentioned in passing, in a single sentence, weeks or months after it took place.

Skip this one. It's not terrible, but there are so many better ones out there.

"One would think that the holocaust books could contain little new - but every survivor has a unique story, and this one particularly so.

Four sisters are able to stick together through their plunge into the horrifying darkness of the concentration camps, though losing their parents and little brother during those years.

The first book ends with the sisters on a death march controlled by SS guards who would not leave their responsibilities, but did not want to get caught with prisoners in an actual concentration camp. Instead prisoners by the hundreds were herded onto back roads through forests, marching from one village to another, dying by the fives and tens each day.

The book ends with the excitement "The Americans are coming, the Americans are coming!"
