The Devil's Arithmetic

Devil's Arithmetic - Jane Yolen Hannah, Jewish and living in New York, is bored with Passover, having to go to the Seder and taking part in the rituals, listening to the boring stories of her relatives while her friends enjoy Easter is just not something she wants to do. But she does. When she opens the door to let Elija in, she finds herself in Poland of the past. Poland during the war, Poland where the Jews are being rounded up like cattle to be brought to a concentration camp. While Hannah knows about whats going on she is dismissed. It's a touching story, a story people should read, a story touch your heart and remind you how horrible things were.
