Fourteen-year-old Dita is one of the many imprisoned by the Nazis at Auschwitz. Taken, along with her mother and father, from the Terezín ghetto in Prague, Dita is adjusting to the constant terror that is life in the camp. When Jewish leader Freddy Hirsch asks Dita to take charge of the eight precious volumes the prisoners have managed to sneak past the guards, she agrees. And so, Dita becomes the librarian of Auschwitz.

One of the best books I have ever read. A must read for any booklover. Engaging and well written the compelling story keeps the reader on the edge throughout the whole read. The address from "Dita Adler" in the opening was especially compelling. I loved it! Wish I could translate it into Icelandic, my native language.
