    Number the Stars by Lois Lowry

    The Devils Arithmetic by Jane Yolen

    Night by Elie Wiesel and Number the Stars by Lois Lowry were good. And I haven't read the book but The Boy in the Striped Pajamas was a good movie so I'm assuming the book would be good.

    Number the Stars is really good. It's about the non-jews that helped the jews escape the nazis.

    The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas wasn't good enough?
