Holy Crap This book completely took my breath away It may be Nielsen's best and I'm someone who swears by The False Prince An incredible look at the work of Jewish resistance fighters during the Holocaust Resistance pulls no punches there is no sugar coating of the atrocities committed by the Nazis and the atmosphere of terror suspicion and desperation And yet this book is filled with hope and pride friendship and love It's honestly incredible that a story featuring such a dark time has so much care and feeling And my favorite Nielsen manages to capture the pride and connectedness of the Jewish people Chaya is fueled by the idea of saving as many of her people as she can Others cling to their faith finding solace in that and their people in the face of inhumane savagery This book is a genuine gem and I hope it gets the recognition it deserves and makes its way into curriculums and classrooms

ResistanceCell finds her and delivers a message that chills Chaya to her core and sends her on a journey toward an even larger uprising in the works in the Warsaw GhettoThough the Jewish resistance never had much of a chance against the Nazis they were determined to save as many lives as possible and to live or die with hono. In many ways this book was awesome Jewish resistance fighters Kids Accurate descriptions of how little help the Allied forces were when atrocities were being committed against Jews and they described zero Jewish refugees as too manyBut something felt off to me Maybe it's because I was raised Jewish but I didn't find this book particularly Jewish The mentions of the Shema seemed like they were written by an outsider perhaps because I've only heard it as the Shema and not the Shema Yisrael as Nielsen writes The Shema is also almost always sung and though the tune was in my head whenever I heard it mentioned I don't know if Nielsen meant all of the iterations to be sung The freuent mention of a meal as The Last Supper was cute but an obviously Christian reference point To use that term without any nod to the fact that Jews don't really care about the Last Supper felt like an oversight It was also odd that Yiddish was mentioned often but rarely if ever includedI will also admit I'm scared that people will read this book and look down upon those who were killed without a fight I have relatives who died at the hands of civilians during peak anti Semitism in Europe I'm sure I have relatives who died by Nazi hands I'm happy to see a book with so many Jewish characters with agency but I don't want to think of my ancestors as any less brave because they didn't become Akiva resistance fighters
