What would I do if I were put a position to save a child's life--but only at great risk to my own? Fortunately for Beatrix, when they're faced with exactly that choice, Hans, Lars, and their neighbor Mrs. Vos make the right decision. Unfortunately for other victims of the Holocaust, people like Hans, Lars, and Mrs. Vos were all too rare.
The End of the Line is not graphic or over the top, but it is powerful. I've read a great many Holocaust books, fiction and nonfiction alike; yet a particularly emotional scene in this one still made me tear up, and I would have given anything to be able to go back in time with the power to make everything right for little Beatrix. Despite all the Holocaust-related reading I've done, The End of the Line is going to stay with me for a long time to come.
I would recommend this for middle grade readers and up and thank the publisher for providing me with a digital copy for educational purposes.
