The Boy in the Suitcase Reviews


It is important to continue to tell the stories of those brutally humiliated, tortured, and murdered during the Holocaust. . . . This book ensures that the innocent victims will no longer remain anonymous in their deaths. As the Maggid of her ancestral Dubno before her, Sheryl tells unique and inspirational stories in her book. In doing so, she honors the memory of the brave resistors, rescuers, and especially the families whose ultimate revenge is their continuance today. -- Zvi Bielski, son of Zus Bielski of the Bielski Brothers Brigade
I am breathless! I had my family read our chapter and we are overwhelmed. Thank you for doing this and for asking me to take part. This book is a legacy that I would be proud to leave my children. -- Shirley, second generation daughter of survivors
I just have to tell you how much I admire Sheryl's intellectual curiosity, talent, appreciation for heritage and history, determination, and energy. -- Shelley, Blogger
