Christina Moore reads this all-too-short story of Piri Davidowitz with an earnest voice filled with all the hope and promise of youthful expectation. Nine-year-old Piri is visiting her grandmother, Babi, when Hitler invades Poland in 1939. For Ukrainian Jews living under occupation, nationalities and boundaries come to mean nothing. Aranka Siegal, herself a survivor of Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen, writes this Newbery Honor Book from her own experience, and Moore's voice, growing tired and weary as the trains arrive to take Piri away, makes that experience all the more poignant.
