Ashes by by Kathryn Lasky

Image:

Thirteen-year-old Gabriella, a Gentile, loves literature. But the political climate of 1932 Berlin is not conducive to books that don’t support Aryan supremacy. Events proliferate. Gabriella’s books get confiscated. Her family is endangered as her parents hide the books of Albert Einstein, a Jew, when he flees the country. And Gabriella witnesses the mass burning of books organized by the Nazis. In a world disintegrating in ashes, Gabriella makes difficult and dangerous choices to stand up for freedom. This young adult novel contains some profanity. Ages 13 and older. (Viking)
