Yellow Star - Jennifer Roy - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book Yellow Star:

The story of a child's survival in the Lodz ghetto.

My favorite Jennifer Roy quote from the book:

"We must honor our differences while we find our own courage and our own strength the best we know how."

Questions I pondered while reading Yellow Star:

How do we make sure this never, ever happens again?

Why is religious persecution *still* so prevalent?

My thoughts about Yellow Star:

I don't know that I could be that brave.

It makes me ill to think of this.

Chocolate can improve almost any situation.
