5/25/2008 Sue Corbin-Browne said: Cynthia Polansky has written with such compassion in this book. With so many books on the Holocaust that are currently on the market, it would seem that all of the stories have been told. But they're not. You need to read at least six million stories, and Polansky's book should be one of them.
