When her German hometown becomes part of Poland after World War I, Lena, a young German Jew, struggles to come to terms with the anti-Semitism and anti-German hatred that seems to be growing around her.
This Book is an excellent book. Not only is it fun to read but it is imformative too. This book was set during world war one and the holocaust. This book is about a young girl and her life over a long period of time. It had a very clever plot and kept me interested the whole way through the book. This book is geared for people between the ages of 12-15. Buy this book and you won't be sorry.

Sacred Shadows is an exiting and touching book. It shows what it was like for a German Jew to live in Poland during the times of Hitler. Lena, a teenaged girl who helps her mother in the shoe store. Sala, a friend from school, and Lena become very good friends, but later Sala freezes to death near a lake after a cold night in Lena's basement. Further into the story Lena falls in love and goes to another country with him because it's too hard to be a Jew in Poland. This is a great book, I think that everyone should read it!
