A Well Writen Book of the Vienna Invasion  Nov 25, 2007
"Fear is everywhere. It's in the air I breathe. The water I drink. The food I eat..." Barry Denenberg wrote this quote in his children's novel One Eye Laughing, The Other Weeping. This book is written as the journal of Julie Weiss, a fourteen year old Jewish girl living in Vienna, Austria in 1938. During that year Hitler invaded Vienna and treated the Jews very poorly. Julie writes about how her family went from top of society to the bottom of the barrel. Her father was a leading doctor in Vienna and was well respected. Once all the trouble breaks out Julie's father sends her to New York City to live with her Aunt Clara, who is a leading actress there.

This is a very quick read, even though it is 212 pages. I think this is an amazing book that gives you a little picture of how the Jews were treated, without much graphic detail. This book is best suited for fourth through seventh graders and is historical fiction. Overall this is a very moving book and I highly recommend it.
 
And Hope Remains  Aug 1, 2007
A very, very touching book about the life of a Austrian-Jewish family just before World War Two. Scary and happy and sad all at once, this is great read for anyone who wants to know more about that time period. Highly reccomended.

-Emma D.
