Googleyeyes: 'I urge you to read this book as it will stay in your memory forever'. I found this writing truly spellbinding, each word gripped me and I long for this book to last a little longer. I have no criticism and looked forward to reading it at night. I don't know how I am going to sum up such a beautiful and intense plot, you're going to have to read the book to know how truly amazing it is. It starts off in World War Two, yet it is not sad and made my heart thud when reading the blurb.

The Silver Sword (also known as Escape From Warsaw) takes place in Warsaw during World War II. It is a very moving account of a family separated by war and how they find inner strength to survive their wartime lot, always holding on to the hope that someday they may find all or some of their family. Most of the story is told from the sisters' perspective, as they are left in the rubble of the Warsaw ghetto to scratch out their existence. The book is moving and powerful in its beautiful depiction of the human relationships formed during this difficult time in history. Although it is fiction, it teaches about the sorrows, starvation, hardships and also joys that occur amongst the 'families' of children left to their own instincts and survival skills in their war-torn reality. Over-coming and endurance are lauded. It is an unforgettable, yet triumphant, book that should make you cry, but will leave a compassionate impression for life on the reader. I highly recommend it.

I read this book when I was in 3rd grade. I now have a 3rd grader and decided to buy this book so we can read it together. It is a heart warming story and one of sadness too.

This one takes me WAY back. I first read this when in sixth grade. I was pleased I was able to track down a copy to re-read at age 68. I was not disappointed. I think elementary and junior high school boys and girls would enjoy reading this as well, especially since it's not focused on boys, with a leading role given to a teenage girl.

As a young student my teacher read this book aloud to my class. It stayed with me for 45 years. I am now reading it aloud to my grandson, we are enjoying it immensely.

I read this when I was 9, and so I bought it for my 8 year old daughter too.

This is a great book for children. It is a very easy book to read, though I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who's looking for a very raw depiction of the holocaust. The book follows a family struggling to survive in a war-torn country. Their only goal is to reunite with some if not all of their missing relatives.
When I think of what kids expect today from the world, this story makes me feel sad for them. The determination and devotion of the kids to their dream of being reunited with their parents was awe inspiring. I hope I have just a smidigen of the tenacity they exhibit. Beautiful story for all ages.
