Description

'At the age of six I began to fear for the future. ... By the age of nine I was on the run for my life. ... By the time I was ten I had seen all there was to see.'



An accessible and honest account of the Holocaust that reminds us of the dangers of racism and intolerance, providing lessons that are relevant today. A true story of heroism during this painful horrific time in history.



Tomi Reichental grew up in a small village, with friendly neighbours and a big, happy family. But things began to change, and Tomi was told he couldn't play with some of the local children any more. Then the police started to take away friends and family.



Life changed completely when he was sent a thousand kilometres away, with all the other local Jews, to the terrifying Bergen-Belsen concentration camp.



The Nazis killed millions of people, simply because of their race or religion.



Tomi tells his story so that such a horrific thing won't happen again.

Review quote

accessible and honest -- Belfast Telegraph a powerful tale and deserves to be shared in Irish classrooms and in classrooms around the world -- InTouch Magazine a lesson from the past ... chillingly relevant for the present -- Evening Echo it is a story that needs to be told and I think it would be an amazing class novel -- seomraranga.com this is a true account, told in narrative form; it certainly doesn't make for easy reading, but the personal touch of the accessible and honest is significant and moving -- Parents in Touch
