Hear O Israel: A Story of the Warsaw Ghetto

by Terry Walton Treseder

Published by Atheneum, 1990
40 pages
ISBN: 0-689-31456-6

Age 13 and older

Isaac, a boy in the Warsaw Ghetto, is certain of his family's love and of the respect of the Jewish community throughout their endurance of anti-Semitic acts during the Second World War. As Isaac begins to realize he will no doubt perish in a death camp, he resolves to die with the same pride he as always felt in being a Jew. The sober, powerful first-person novella is divided into four sections: Bar Mitzvah, Hunger, Train Ride and Treblinka. Bloom's five paintings reproduced in monochrome contribute to the bravery and nobility of a testament to love, faith and courage. CCBC categories: History, People And Places; Fiction For Teenagers.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
