Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Laura is about to celebrate her Jewish coming of age ceremony, called a Bat Mitzvah, when she is twinned with Sara Gittler, a young girl her own age who was imprisoned by the Nazis in the Warsaw Ghetto during the Holocaust. Laura is to learn about Sara's life and then share her Bat Mitzvah with her twin by speaking of her at the ceremony. Sara's diary unfolds with the details of her daily life in the Ghetto, a world full of fear, confusion, tragedy and above all, courage. From Sara's brave story, Laura learns how to find the courage to confront a problem in her own life. Includes photographs, biographies of young heroes of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, and true accounts of Twinning Ceremonies.
