Rosen makes comparisons with the present-day refugee crisis and injects hope in the final chapter (and, boy, do we need it), with one of his best poems, Today; One Day. Essential reading. * The Times, Book of the Week *
Rosen handles the difficult topic as sensitively and thoughtfully as you would expect, always writing in a straightforward and accessible way for children, interspersed with his own poetry. * BookTrust *
What is so affecting about this book is its gentle tone. Instead of anger, there is contemplation - and, as always with Rosen, an innate ability to see every mystery through a child's eyes. * The Telegraph *
The personal connection, the use of source materials, the accessibility of the text and the way it encourages empathy (both with historical and current events) all make this an invaluable text for UKS2 and KS3. A poignant and essential read. * ReadingZone *
Rosen intersperses his family memoir with his own poetry to create a fascinating, chilling and poignantly personal take on unimaginable horrors of genocide. * The Financial Times *
