Sarah’s Key

Saray's Key book coverBarb of Fiction/AV/Teen Services recommends Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnay:

I highly recommend this compelling story of an American journalist, Julia Jamond, who is asked to write an article about the 1942 roundup of Jews by the French police in the Vel d’Hiv section of Paris. Julia becomes completely engaged in the story because her in-laws move into the apartment that ten-year-old Sarah lived in on the fateful night in 1942 when Sarah and family were forcefully taken from their home to be put in French camps and then to Auschwitz. You become absorbed in the story of young Sarah and her treasured key in 1942 and Julia and her family in 2002. Sarah’s Key is a book you cannot stop reading.
