    1. “Torn Thread” By Anne Isaacs tells the story of Eva, a young Jewish girl from Bedzin, Poland. In the beginning, 12-year-old Eva is living in a Jewish ghetto with her father and her older sister Rachel. When Rachel is taken by Nazi soldiers, her father uses the connections from his job to find out that she has been sent to a labor camp in Parschnitz, Czechoslovakia. He asks for Eva to be sent there as well, because then he’ll know that she’s safe with her sister, and she’ll be less lik [...]


    2. This book is based on what happened to two Polish sisters during the Holocaust. Eva, 12, is the youngest of the sisters and joins her sickly sister Rachel at a camp after her father's request to. Rachel was captured during a raid by the Nazis while in a Jewish ghetto and taken to the Nazi labor camp. Eva's father has some influence with the Nazis and finds out Rachel is safe and decides Eva will be safer there than in the ghetto. The sisters work in a textile mill with dangerous machines, mostly [...]


    3. This book is so amazing and sad. I really liked it. It's horrible what hittler sent out to do :( I hope that this would nenver happen, ever! People say that when your young life your life to the fullist,play have fun and enjoy your self because when your older you can't because you have to work and have many responsibilities to take on. But in this book it wasnt like that. 12 year old Eva and her sister Rachel had to work in a nazi labor camp. It's horrible what they had to do there. They weren' [...]


    4. The book was about a girl named Eva and her older sister named Rachel. At the begining of the book, Eva and her sister live with their father in a Jewish ghetto in Poland during World War II where they struggle to survive , living in a small attic with small rations. Rachel has weak lungs and a weak immune system which affects her for the worst through the entire book. One day, as Rachel is walking to their Aunt and Uncle's house, she is taken by the Nazi's in a raid and sent to a labor camp. A [...]


    5. Torn Thread was an excellent book. Because of its detail and description, readers were able to comprehend what was occurring during the second World War and the scars it left on many peoples' lives. Torn Thread is about a young girl, Eva, and her fight at a concentration camp in Czechoslovakia to save not only herself, but her sick and slowly dying sister, Rachel. On top of that, she must walk until she collapses due to orders from the Nazis and produce uniforms for the German army. Furthermore, [...]


    6. Torn Thread by Anna Isaacs, is a book that takes place in a work camp located in Czechoslovakia. The two main characters, Eva and her little sister Rachel, must find a way to stay alive for "one more hour" as her father told Eva to do. All the characters in the book are believable because they are based off of real people that really existed. The setting and plot may not be authentic, but the author makes the reader believe that it is. This first person narration has a wonderful design and style [...]


    7. This book tells of two young Polish sisters who are sent to a Nazi work camp - the oldest is twelve years old - and are forced to make clothing for German soldiers. It is a true story that shows how the human spirit can overcome extraordinary odds and survive by sharing the goodness that is in all of us.


    8. This book was way better than I thought it was going to be. It was full of suspense and I wanted to keep on reading everyday. This story was about a family and one girl, Rachel, was taken by nazi's and forced to a camp. Then Eva her sister went to the camp to help her stay alive, and after many rough challenges they managed to be liberated. I liked this book and would recommend you read it.


    9. I think I got this book months ago because it was mentioned in another holocaust book I read. It is shelved as juvenile fiction at my library, but no way would I want a juvenile grandchild of mine to read it. The vocabulary level may be middle school but the subject matter is adult. It is about the terrible treatment of women and young Jewish girls sent to a German labor camp in Czechoslavakia to spin thread on dangerous machinery to make blankets and uniforms for the German army. The descriptio [...]


    10. If I were to save my family from a fire, the next thing I would grab is this book and someone named Eva, (another book). I fell in love with this book, and was tempted to steal it from the library along with someone named Eva. Love. Love love this book. It is just so sad and heartbreak, the last couple of chapters were nail biting, when we didn't know if Rachel was going to live.I can't. Just read this book.


    11. Very sad, but based on author's mother-in-law's real life holocaust experience. Hard to determine how much was fact and how much was fiction, but certainly a troubling time! It seemed to end just a bit abruptly. I would have been interested in more details on what happened to the characters in the months after the war ended.


    12. I think this book is interesting because it tells that what happened in the past. It also tells who is courageous. The book also tells what happened to the jews, who did this to them, what did the jews do in that time. this is why the Torn Thread is interesting.


    13. Eva and Rachel two sisters who loved each other dearly. But unfortunately Rachel got taken away. Will the two survive? A very great book I recommend it to anyone who likes to read about the holocaust.



    14. I had chosen the book 'Torn Thread' by Anne Isaacs as I was fascinated to learn and have a first person perspective on what life would have been like during the time of the holocaust. Holocaust stories have always been a very fascinating topic of writing. It is also very engaging, and is a key reason to why I had decided to read such a book; as I am not a keen book reader. Half way through ‘torn thread’, I have started to achieve a greater understanding of the characters within the novel and [...]


    15. This is a story set right into World War Two, of the story of a girl named Eva. Eva, her constantly ill sister Rachel, and their Papa are living together in a Jewish fenced ghetto when Rachel is taken during a random round-up. Their Papa discovers where she is taken, he arranges for Eva to be sent to work there at a labor camp with her, insisting that he has plans. Rachel bundles up and finds her sister, and together they work at a textile factory as their extremely difficult life truly turns di [...]


    16. Torn Thread by Anne Isaacs Torn Thread, written by Anne Isaacs, is a tragic story about Eva and her sister Rachel. Near the beginning of the book, the Nazis raid Rachel, but Eva is soon to follow as she was sent by their father to take care of the both of them in the Jewish concentration camp. At the camp, they must work in a factory from morning to dark only spinning threads and taking care of bobbins that need taking care of. The get very little to eat everyday, and get sick easily due to the [...]


    17. Not All Is Quiet on the Western FrontBedzin, a small town in southwestern Poland, once had a thriving Jewish community. During the Holocaust, the Nazis ensured that this town would be "judenrein," ethnically cleansed of Jews. This beautifully written, very sad novel, tells of one girl, Eva, who was forced to work in a labor camp and the utter humiliations she had to endure. However, as with most Jews during the Holocaust, her will to survive was ever strong - hope is always present even in areas [...]


    18. Anne Isaacs did a wonderful job with writing this story! The two sisters in the story, Rachel and Eva, were wonderful characters. Rachel is the eldest of the two girls, but is very prone to illness, leading to Eva to taking over the eldest spot. Throughout the whole book, Eva is constantly worrying about Rachel's health. Before the sisters left to this camp, their father gave them life-saving advice. "Try to live another hour." This advice is the motivation for the two sisters to keep going and [...]



    19. My understanding of the story is that the author was trying to tell the reader what it was like during the holocaust. The author tried to point out how devastating it was and how people went through hard times. By telling a story about a family who actually experienced what it was truly like for them being Jewish and going to a concentration camp, the author was able to express the thoughts of the victims and what it was like for them to witness or be part of the awful mistreatment the Nazis sub [...]


    20. In June of 1943, 12 year old Eva is living in an attic room with her sister, Rachel and her father, in the Jewish ghetto of Bedzin, Poland. Sickly 14 year old Rachel is out getting their bread ration, her first day out after an illness, when she is gathered up in a raid by the Nazis. Eva's father finds out through his sympathetic employer that she was sent to a labor camp in Czechoslovakia. When additional raids take more people and to unknown locations, he arranges to have Eva sent to the same [...]


    21. A novel based on the mother-in-law of the author and her experiences at a Nazi work camp. The story is very good. I was drawn into the lives of Eva and Rachel immediately. Rachel being the weaker of the two. She has lived her life being burdened with health issues. Due to the death of their mother, Eva and Rachel live with their father. This story follows the main character, Eva, and her journey and story during the years of 1943-1945. Character development is very good. Even though most readers [...]


    22. I really liked this book. I liked this book because it said a lot about what it was like to live during that time as a Jew. It was very descriptive and explained everything very well. The part I didn't like about this book was how it took a while to read because it was so explanatory. My favorite part of the book was when Eva came to the concentration camp with Rachel. I liked this part because if Eva wasn't there she wouldn't be able to help Rachel when sick and Rachel wouldn't have as much foo [...]


    23. Creative Non-fictionThis biographical account of Eva and her sister's survival experience during the Nazi occupation of Poland, and their eventual immigration to the United States is written in a way that will appeal to young adult readers. Eva and her sister are deported to a Nazi work camp in Poland (Bergen-Belsen) where they work in a textile factory. Facing starvation and terrible work experiences, they survive to see themselves liberated at the end of the war and share the experience. Those [...]


    24. 1943. Twelve-year-old Eva, her sister Rachel and their father live in a Jewish Ghetto in the Polish town of Bedzin. Life is hard, but they rely on each other to get through thing. When Eva and Rachel are sent away to a Nazi work camp, the girls have only each other to depend on. They struggle to find enough food, stay warm, and survive the trip to the factory they are forced to work in. When Rachel's health begins to worsen, Eva becomes creative in the ways she works to keep her sister alive. Th [...]


    25. A book that demonstrates the depths of human courage and the will to survive, teens would enjoy this story of two sisters struggling to survive in a work camp during the final few years of World War II. The descriptions of the terrible conditons that the sisters (Eva and Rachel) endure along with the other women of hte camp adds to the authenticity of the story.I'd promote this book to teens as part of a display theme based on World War II and the horrors it engendered. Really, I'd recommend thi [...]


    26. This is a slightly different look at the holocaust. These girls were sent to a work camp by their mother to keep them 'safe' from the concentration camps. They had a slightly better experience in terms of having shelter, blankets, hot water (sometimes) and a bit more food (at least in the beginning) than people in the death camps. But they had to work and work was in a textile mill several km. from the camp and they had to walk, even in the bitter cold of winter. This is a true story and at the [...]


    27. A fresh and interesting look into the Holocaust from two young girls' perspectives. Written by the daughter-in-law of one of the survivor's, Rachel and Eva must band together to overcome the hardships at camp Parschnitz. The girls must travel miles to work and back to camp, but survive against the threading machines, food shortages, and sickness."Even now, there is sometimes a choice, a chance to act. Each choice may not mean much. It may only grant you another hour. But that is one hour closer [...]


    28. I liked this book told from the perspective of children in Poland during WWII. It highlights all of the struggles of children around Europe clinging to hope they will be rescued in time. An accidental release is the only escape which makes you wonder what God sometimes orchestrates even in this historical fiction novel. There is some truth weaved in as far as incidents, places, memorials, etc. I have a Symbaloo with related links to this story. Two sisters are divided from their parents and clin [...]
