Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent ! This book seemed like a sequel to the book also written by Carol Matas: In my enemies house which was an excellent story as well that tells about a girl living in the world war two. Though a little descriptive of what the nazis did to them it was a great book !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from After the War This is a wonderful book about 15 year old Ruth. It takes place in the year 1945, the second World War having just ended. Ruth is a Jew, and had been in one of Hitler's concentration camps for 5 years. When she is freeded by Allied soldiers, she finds herself with no money and no home. Ruth tries to find some members of her family, but discovers that all of them had been murdered by the Nazis. This is a great book, that shows that you must never give up hope. Never.
