" Sparse in words, but powerful when one realizes the risk taken and the history that is documented and proved by way of the pictures. " said.

" The historical background behind this story is amazing and the photographs are really worth looking at. " said.

" I picked this book up for pretty cheap. I tend to look at the pictures more often than I actually 'read' the book. " said.

" Excellent, rare photographs paired with simple descriptions. A great introduction to the ghettos of the Holocaust. " said.

" Images that leave you breathless. " said.

" This book would have far more impact without the writing, or if the writing was done by the photographer, not a third party. " said.

" It is easy to brim over with tears while reading this book. Photographs and a simple text about the photographer who documented life in the ghetto hit dreadfully hard. A great text for WWII background knowledge building. " said.

"Children's nonfiction featuring the Lodz ghetto photos of Holocaust victim Mendel Grossman...who documented the conditions secretly. He had access to photography eq because his official job was to take ID pictures of the Jews in the ghetto. Smith's captions do a good job capturing the emotion of the times. Mendel did not survive, and unfortunately his 10,000 negatives did not either (destroyed in an Israeli war after surviving a hiding space in the Lodz ghetto during WW2). This is a good intro to children on ghetto life. I think it could be even more powerful if written for an adult audience with other photos. " said.
